The role of FAA and NTSB as air travel regulators:
Both the Major air carrier and general aviation accidents (non-commercial aircrafts such as charter planes) are extensively covered under the Aviation Accident law. The aviation accidents are generally caused due to faulty equipment, violations of the rule and procedures prescribed by the Federal Aviation Administration, issues with the structure and design of aircrafts, negligence in the selection of service providers of a carrier and human negligence such as pilot errors.
The air travel in the United States is regulated by two main federal agencies, i.e., the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Federal Aviation Administration is responsible for defining safety standards and rules for the air carriers and aircraft manufacturers. The standards and rules are strictly imposed and organizations are penalized if they fail to comply. On the other hand, the National Transportation Safety Board performs all the investigations after a civil aircraft accident case is reported and shares its recommendations to improve the safety of air travel.
Some of the types of accidents that we help with include but not limited to:
- Accidents when aircrafts collide
- Aircrafts colliding with other objects
- Private aviation helicopter crashes
- Takeoff and landing accidents
- Inflight injuries caused by turbulence
First Class Representation You Can Trust
It’s important to understand that if you decide to file for a legal claim after an accident, it’s not always the aircraft operator who will be legally liable for the compensation. And it fully depends on the cause of an accident. If there’s any flaw in the rules and procedures then you can hold the regulatory bodies responsible, if the accident happens due to a faulty equipment or tool then the manufacturer will be questioned.
