An aviation accident is an accident that takes place under unique circumstances. For one, you are 30,000 miles above ground. For two, you are usually not the one in control of the airplane and thus you have little control on what happens. Putting your life in the hands of a professional pilot and an experienced grounds crew can be a little scary and many people choose not to fly because of the risks. While flying is considered one of the safest modes of transportation, it is still terrifying, especially as if there is an aviation accident, the results are often life altering or fatal.
Airplane and Helicopter Accidents
When you hear of a helicopter or airplane accident, it often ends with death. This is because of the sheer impact and strength of these machines as well as the unique mode of travel where you are usually 30,000 miles above ground. Airplane accidents can happen for a number of different reasons including:
- Mechanic defects with the machine
- Inadequate servicing and maintenance by the mechanic staff
- Poor driving and navigating by the pilot
- A loss of control over the machine
- Extreme weather conditions
- Airplane and helicopter collisions

Minnesota Injury Attorneys
Commercial airlines have a legal responsibility to protect their passengers. There are laws in place, such as no alcohol law for pilots and certain regulations for mechanics and grounds crew. If an airplane is deemed unsafe, under no circumstances should it be able to fly. In the event of an aviation accident, it is often due to the utter negligence to the rules and regulations by the commercial airline company.
