The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, as well as the Convention on
International Civil Aviation, have developed a specific legal definition
for what constitutes and aviation accident. An aviation accident is defined
as an occurrence that is directly associated with the operation of an
aircraft. It is considered an aviation accident when it takes place between
the time a person boards an aircraft with the specific intention to fly
and continues until the last person deplanes. An incident rises to the
level of an aviation accident when a person on the aircraft is seriously
or fatally injured and the aircraft itself sustains damage.

for different types of aviation accident cases. An initial consultation

The National Transportation Safety Board, or NTSB, investigates aviation
accidents in the United States. Although there are always specific facts
associated with a particular events, there are some more frequent types
of aviation accidents in the United States and elsewhere around the world.
Common Types of Aviation Accidents
There are a number of aviation accidents that occur with greater frequency
over those that are less commonplace. Oftentimes, a combination of causes
underpin a particular aviation accident.
The more frequently occurring types of aviation accidents include:
- pilot error
- mechanical failure
- design defect or failure
- air traffic control error
- defective runways
In many cases, something will go awry during the course of a flight. The
initial problem is aggravated by another issue. For example, a mechanical
failure of some sort may occur, which is not in and of itself particularly
significant. However, due to pilot error, that initial problem becomes
aggravated, resulting in an aviation accident that results in serious
and even fatal injuries.
A key element in ensuring that your rights fully are protected in the aftermath
of an aviation accident is identifying all of the underlying causes. By
ensuring that all underlying causes of an aviation accident are identified,
all potentially responsible parties are also identified.
