Cincinnati Pilot Error Lawyers

Air travel remains the safest way to travel great distances in America, with the likelihood of being killed in an accident greater than 1 in 9.2 million. While these accidents are rare, they remain some of the most deadly accidents in the world due to the vulnerable position an aircraft and its passengers are in should control be lost.

The leading cause of airline accidents is, by far, pilot error, accounting for 46 percent of fatal accidents in scheduled flights since 2000. Aircraft passengers are almost exclusively paying customers who have a reasonable expectation of safety, and the victims of an aircraft crash should never be left with the financial responsibility for any resulting injuries or other losses. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in an aircraft crash caused by the negligence of a pilot, call the experienced Cincinnati pilot error attorneys of Stepleton Dugan, LLC, today at 513-321-7733 to learn more about your legal options.

Examples of Pilot Error

The operation of an aircraft is a delicate process requiring considerable skill and experience, and despite numerous fail safes and backup safety systems, pilot error always has the potential of causing an accident. Even when a mechanical malfunction or inclement weather is involved in an accident, pilot error can be the primary contributor to the accident if the pilot fails to take the appropriate actions to avoid a disaster. Errors can include:

  • A mistake or incorrect action in operation
  • An oversight of safety protocols
  • A lapse in reasonable judgment
  • Failure to exercise due diligence

Sadly, when airplane accidents do occur, the results are tragic, with only 24% of passengers surviving in crashes that involve at least one fatality.
