Airline Negligence Claims

To better ensure the safety of their passengers, the commercial aviation industry must comply with a comprehensive set of federal safety standards and regulations. As a result, traveling by air is one of the safest, most efficient modes of transportation available to Americans. However, when airline companies fail to fully comply with federal regulations and standards, they put their passengers at an increased risk of being involved in an accident that is likely to be exceedingly dangerous.

While airplane accidents are relatively uncommon, they are commonly attributed to error or negligence of one type or another when they do occur. With that in mind, airline companies may typically be held liable for the damages sustained by the passengers, and their families, of the downed aircraft.

Forms of Airline Negligence

As a means to cut back on expenses in a highly competitive market, some airliners may become negligent in some of their responsibilities to their passengers, thereby putting them at an elevated risk. Among the most commonly reported forms of airline negligence include:

  • Negligent hiring
  • Failure to train
