Airlines Can Be At Fault For Injury

Thousands of commercial airplanes criss-cross the United States every day. When passengers purchase airplane tickets for either a family vacation or business trip, they expect everyone involved with the airline company to act responsibly to ensure that the airplane reaches its destination safely. Unfortunately, many airline companies act negligently and thereby endanger the welfare of their passengers.

Although airplane crashes are statistically much rarer than automobile accidents, airplane crashes almost always cause severe injuries and fatalities. If you have been hurt in an aviation accident, you may be entitled to pursue financial compensation.

Possible Negligent Actions

Airline companies are always looking for ways to decrease expenses and maximize profits. Cutting costs, however, may compromise passenger safety. Though the company itself may not have complete and direct control over day-to-day operations, the airline is exclusively responsible for personnel decisions and actions. The following may warrant legal action:

  • Negligent hiring
  • Failure to train

Discovering these negligent actions on by the airline requires a thorough investigation, and a skilled and experienced Louisville airline negligence attorney can help to ensure that the true underlying cause of your aviation accident is identified.
