Pilot Error Attorney

Airplane pilots undergo years of training before they are allowed to operate commercial flights, as any accidents with large passenger planes can be catastrophic. Pilots have a responsibility to their passengers and cabin crew to exercise proper caution and follow appropriate safety guidelines when flying an aircraft, and if they fail to do so, they can be held accountable for any injuries that occur as a result of this negligence. Unfortunately, pilot error is one of the leading causes of airplane accidents, and there are a number of ways in which a pilot’s irresponsible behavior can impact the safety of his or her passengers and crew.

Common Pilot Mistakes

Pilots have clear safety guidelines that they’re expected to follow closely. Due to the sensitive nature of piloting an aircraft, it’s crucial that these rules are obeyed and that pilots give their full attention to operating their planes. The following are dangerous types of pilot errors that can endanger everyone onboard a plane:

  • Breaking basic professional and government safety guidelines
  • Ignoring air traffic control
  • Failing to recognize overly dangerous weather conditions
  • Failing to take note of mechanical warnings
  • Piloting while under the influence of an intoxicant

Cabin crew and passengers injured because of a pilot’s mistakes may be entitled to file a claim for financial compensation against that pilot or his or her employer.
