Even though aircraft accidents are rare, as compared to car accidents, and there is, thankfully, an overall downward trend in the rate of aircraft accidents, those that do occur are very devastating to the passengers and their families and require rigorous investigation.
Why Aircraft Accident Cases Are Complex
When it comes to aircraft accidents, multiple parties may be responsible, such as the airline, aircraft manufacturer, airplane parts manufacturer, or the plane maintenance company. When an aircraft crash occurs, the Transportation Safety Board of Canada investigates. These investigations are thorough and can take considerable time.
Further complicating aircraft accident litigation is that the number of people and entities involved means assigning fault for injury can be contentious and complicated. If the crash causes multiple injuries or deaths, victims and their families may need to decide whether to pursue actions individually or together in a class action.
