New York Airplane Negligence Lawyers
There are numerous crucial safety checks and other procedures that aircraft personnel should run through before take-off. Each crew working on a flight needs to make sure that they’ve adequately addressed all major safety concerns, completed their duties responsibly and safely, and taken care of special needs passengers. When airlines and their employees fail to make sure these duties are fulfilled, the injuries and losses to passengers and others can be immense and devastating.
Airlines and employees who are negligent, causing a crash and/or people to be harmed deserve to be held liable for their mistakes and the ensuing consequences.

The Hazards of Airplane Negligence
With so many responsibilities that must be fulfilled before a flight, it’s possible for a crew member on the ground or in the plane to make a serious error or neglect their duties. This thoughtlessness, which can include the following actions, may lead to injuries for those on-board the plane:
- Ground crews failing to adequately refuel a plane
- Ground crews not addressing environmental concerns, such as ice
- Ground crews not attending to potentially serious mechanical problems
- Cabin crews not running through their routine safety checks
- Cabin crews failing to explain safety procedures to passengers
- Cabin crews failing to address any special needs particular passengers may have
These mistakes may cost a passenger or a crew member dearly and place a massive financial burden on their household due to the high price of medical care.
An injury due to airplane negligence may leave your household with considerable financial concerns, arising due to high medical costs, out-of-pocket expenses, and income lost during recovery. Compensation may be available to cover many of these costs, in addition to your emotional and physical suffering as well.
