Small Plane Crash Investigations

When a small plane crashes, the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and NTSB (National Travel Safety Board) investigate to determine the cause of the crash. This is true of every civilian plane crash. The goal of an investigation is to discover what went wrong, and if possible, prevent it from happening again.

Common Causes Of Small Plane Crashes

Small planes can crash for a variety of reasons. Some reasons are pilot error while others can be the fault of someone else. Improper maintenance or faulty/defective parts can cause a plane crash. Additionally, there may be circumstances outside of anyone’s control: birds, weather events, etc.

Time Limit To File A Claim

If an investigation determines someone was at fault for the small aircraft crash, it may be possible for those injured to file a personal injury claim. In the event of a fatal injury, surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death claim. If this is the case, talk to an experienced personal injury attorney. Timing is critical to file a personal injury claim. In most cases, there is a 2-year time limit to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
