Defective Or Malfunctioning Airplanes
Although they are often taken for granted, airplanes are extremely complicated pieces of machinery that need properly working parts in order to run safely and efficiently. When airplanes are either designed or manufactured poorly, the consequences could be disastrous. A significant number of airplane crashes occur because of airplane defects or malfunctions. The engineers, manufacturers or mechanics responsible for those crashes should be held accountable for the resulting harm.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an airplane crash because of a defect or malfunction, you may be eligible for financial compensation.
Common Airplane Defects And Malfunctions
Airplane travel has become increasingly safe from year to year, but there is still a risk of an accident, especially when companies are negligent in the manufacturing and inspection of these airplanes. While airplane crashes are extremely rare as compared to automobile accidents, airplane accidents are almost certain to cause catastrophic injuries or even death. Some of the most common airplane defects and malfunctions include the following:
- Improperly working brakes
- Landing gear failure
- Malfunctioning gauges

- Engine failure
Any of these defects could potentially put hundreds of lives in jeopardy. Contact an experienced attorney today if you have been harmed or have tragically lost a loved one due to flaws in the design or function of an airplane.
