Cincinnati Mechanical Defects and Malfunctions Lawyers
Air travel has become so commonplace that it is easy to lose sight of the fact that a 100,000 pound machine loaded with hundreds of people and their luggage lifting off the ground and hurtling through the air at over 700 miles per hour is an absolute marvel of engineering. The mechanical and electrical systems that work together to make air travel possible are extremely complex, and a disastrous accident can result when they fail.
In airplane accidents involving at least one fatality, an average of only 20% of the occupants survive. When these accidents are caused by preventable problems like manufacturing defects and malfunctions, the victims should never be left paying for the damages and medical bills caused by another party’s mistakes.

Call us today at 513-321-7733 to learn more about your legal options.
Common Airplane Malfunctions and Defects
Air travel is statistically the safest means of travel in the United States, but when accidents do occur they tend to be catastrophic. Defects and malfunctions in the following systems can contribute to an accident:
- Instrumentation and Gauges
- Communications Devices
- Landing Gear
It is the responsibility of airplane manufacturers to build safe aircraft, and the responsibility of maintenance workers and operators to maintain and inspect their aircraft on a regular basis to ensure the safety of all passengers. Sadly, these standards are not always upheld.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury caused by the negligence of an aircraft manufacturer or operator, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses and other losses.
