What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Aviation Injury Lawyer: Airline Negligence/Liability

As statistically safe as airline travel is, there are still many ways for accidents to occur. While some airline injuries are the results of unforeseeable emergencies or unavoidable mistakes, others can be traced back to a negligent or reckless decision made by an airline employee. When this occurs, the airline can be held legally responsible for any injuries clients have suffered.

Examples of Airline Negligence

Because an airline is such a large and complex organization, there are many errors which can be committed by its employees out of sheer carelessness. Some examples include:

  • Failure to hire and adequately train skilled pilots
  • Improper maintenance plane engines or safety equipment
  • Overlooking safety conditions in airports, such as wet floors that can cause falls
  • Failure to fully inform passengers about safety and emergency protocol
  • Failing to properly close/latch overhead bins, leading to falling luggage

Consequences of Airline Negligence

When airline employees fail to observe proper safety protocol, the results can range from minor injuries to catastrophes. A person may trip on loose carpeting and sprain his ankle, or a plane may run out of fuel before reaching its destination. No matter how mild or severe the accident is, airlines are liable for any injuries suffered by clients as a result of their negligence. At the offices of Jacksonville airline liability lawyer Don Guthrie, we believe in seeing justice done against these reckless airline workers.
