Were You Injured in An Airplane Accident in Beaumont?
At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Beaumont airplane accident lawyers know that a jetliner does not have to physically crash for passengers on board to suffer severe injuries. In fact, while plane crashes do occur, a Harvard University study found that the odds of a plane crashing are 1 in 1.2 million.
Recently, however, there have been multiple instances of “severe turbulence” on flights that have left dozens of people injured. Turbulence, which causes planes to suddenly jolt while in flight, left 36 people injured, 11 seriously, during a Hawaiian Airlines flight from Phoenix to Honolulu.
Closely following, a Lufthansa Flight, traveling from Austin, Texas to Frankfurt, Germany, was forced to make an emergency landing in Washington D.C. due to severe turbulence. In another instance, passengers on a bumpy Southwest flight from Maryland to North Carolina described a horrific trip that caused several travelers to vomit and left them stranded in a closed South Carolina airport overnight.
These flights leave passengers both physically and emotionally injured, with little recourse but to pursue the airline for their damages. Unfortunately, the airlines, their legal teams, and insurance companies are not going to openly accept the blame for these injurious accidents.

What are the Most Common Causes of Airplane Accidents?
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) work together to ensure flight safety throughout the U.S., and often aid in international incidents to ensure all airline errors are accounted for, and explained, so they can keep these often tragic incidents from reoccurring.
Some of the most common type causes of in-flight, landing, and other airplane incidents are the result of:
- Aircraft mechanical errors, which may include parts failures.
- Defects on the airport runway.
- Air traffic controller error.
- Error or misjudgment by the aircraft pilot.
- Human error.
- Flight service station employee negligence.
- Negligence in fueling the aircraft.
- Poor maintenance of any part of the aircraft.
- Not adhering to FAA or NTSB regulations.
- Structural or design defects that went unchecked or were never fixed.
- Third party’s carrier selection negligence.
