Spate of small plane crashes darkens Sunshine State's skies

In the first several weeks of 2018, a handful of folks have dies in several small plane crashes across Florida, including a sheriff in the Keys, a couple off Bonita Springs, and a man flying an experimental aircraft near the Carabelle airport. While it can be difficult to ascertain the causes of an aviation accident at first blush, a thorough investigation can help get to the bottom of the matter and indicate what - or who - precisely is to blame for the tragedy.

A devastating plane crash can be caused by anything from pilot error or environmental condition to faulty maintenance or a design defect can cause an aircraft to crash. Cases of manufacturing, design, or maintenance defects may implicate strict products liability. Instances of pilot error, on the other hand, may be attributable to negligence. In some cases, the crash may have resulted from a combination of circumstances.

It is for these reasons that accident investigations are so important. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) leads or assists investigations of crashes that involve U.S. aircraft or passengers. If it can be ascertained through the investigation (some plane crashes remain unsolved) what caused the crash, the NTSB will issue a report with their findings. If the crash was due to a defect or negligence, accident victims or their families may be entitled to compensation.

As this recent series of Florida plane crashes demonstrates, aviation accidents can be devastating. An investigation not only helps to determine the reasons behind such an accident, it helps victims and their loved ones understand what happened. A seasoned lawyer can help those who have been affected by plane crashes go over their options and assess what can be done to start on the road to recovery.
