What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Plane Crash Attorney: Air Traffic Controller Error

Takeoff and landing are the two most dangerous times in a plane flight. It is not difficult to imagine why; the pilot and co-pilot must steer the plane, which is moving extremely fast, with great precision. During this time it is vital for a plane’s crew to receive timely and accurate information from nearby air traffic controllers. If they do not receive it, the results can be disastrous.

Causes of Air Traffic Controller Error

An air traffic control room is a fast-paced and very high pressure environment. Controllers must keep track of a number of planes on the runway or in the air, along with other variables such as wind direction and speed, with near-perfect accuracy.

It has been suggested that memory error is the main cause of air traffic controller error. Although controllers are well trained and held to very high standards of behavior, they can still simply forget certain details as they guide planes through takeoff or landing. In that situation, unfortunately, the smallest error can have very significant consequences.

Liability for Your Injuries

Although controller error is often understandable, this does not mean it is excusable in any way. The people who work in this field understand how important their jobs are, and what serious injuries can result if they make mistakes. This means that they and their employers are fully liable for any injuries that their mistakes may cause.
