The attorneys at the Alaska Personal Injury Group are familiar with the unique weather, terrain and pilot training issues that often arise in aviation accidents in this state. They have investigated accidents caused by pilot error, manufacturing mistakes and aerodynamic design defects. They have handled cases, for example, involving inadequate deicing of a commuter aircraft; negligent engine overhaul and subsequent engine failure; flight into both terrain and water due to pilot disorientation, and aerodynamic and other design defects.

Determining what caused an aircraft crash is often difficult. Uncovering the truth requires attorneys who will carefully evaluate multiple sources of human and forensic information, thoroughly investigate the facts, and meticulously evaluate the accumulated evidence with the assistance of highly skilled aviation experts. Only then can negligent and reckless conduct be clearly identified; and the goals of preventing future accidents and obtaining full and fair compensation advanced.

Plane Crashes Pilot error is often a principal or important contributing cause of a crash, but sometimes the pilot and passengers died because a critical part was incorrectly manufactured, the aircraft was not properly designed, or the pilot operating handbook inaccurately described the characteristics or appropriate operation of the aircraft. On many occasions, what initially appeared to be simple "pilot error" was instead the predictable result of inadequate training and company pressure to "meet the schedule" regardless of adverse weather. Such training issues are not limited to commercial flight operations. Some of our cases have involved student pilots were not adequately trained or who were sent on solo flights into bad weather.
