Were You Injured In An Airplane Accident in San Antonio?
At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our San Antonio aviation accident attorneys know that no one — whether they are traveling for business or pleasure — expects an air disaster to occur while they are onboard a private or commercial airplane, charter flight, or helicopter.
In fact, the chances of a plane crashing are approximately 1 in 1.2 million. The annual risk of being killed in an airplane crash is about 1 in 11 million. Comparatively, the annual risk of being killed in a motor vehicle crash for the average American is about 1 in 5,000.
While the statistics of a deadly crash occurring may be slim, injurious aviation accidents can happen without notice. The San Antonio International Airport (SAT) averages 260 daily departures and arrivals at its 24 gates, which serve 12 airlines flying non-stop to 53 destinations in the US and Mexico.
Our Texas airplane accident attorneys know passengers on these flights can be subjected to in-air challenges, including mechanical failures, human error, weather, or another danger that requires emergency landings, which can result in serious injuries. When our Bexar, Comal, and Medina County residents are hurt, our personal injury lawyers and support staff provide the critical legal resources our fellow Texans need to pursue results.
Collectively, our skilled San Antonio airplane accident attorneys have spent more than three decades working on both sides of the courtroom, gaining unparalleled experience of the inner workings of some of the world’s largest insurance companies, and transforming that knowledge into wins for our clients.
We can pursue the same results for you and your family. Contact us today to learn more.
Who is Liable for Airplane Accidents in San Antonio, Texas?
All aviation accidents are carefully investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). In conjunction with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) — which regulates the aviation industry and sets standards for pilots, air traffic controllers, airport authorities, aircraft manufacturers, and parts suppliers — the NTSB will determine who or what was the origin of an aviation incident, no matter how minor, severe, or catastrophic.
Based on the NTSB investigation, which includes preserving evidence, rebuilding the airplane or another aviation vehicle, and interviewing all involved parties, the agency will make a precise determination of the cause of the crash or defect that led to an emergency landing.
That may include:
- Aircraft mechanical errors, which may include parts failures.
- Human error.
- Error or misjudgment by the aircraft pilot.
- Air traffic controller error.
- Flight service station employee negligence.
- Defects on the airport runway.
- Third party’s carrier negligence.
- Not adhering to FAA regulations.
- Negligence in fueling the aircraft.
- Poor maintenance of any part of the aircraft.
- Structural or design defects that went unchecked or were never fixed.
