Airplane Maintenance Error
There is no way to ever make air travel – or any form of travel – absolutely and unerringly accident free. But the high stakes of commercial airplane flight make it essential that all reasonable measures are taken to maximize safety and allow little tolerance for negligence on the part of any parties involved.
This extends beyond the airline itself to include any external maintenance companies who perform work on all or part of the aircraft. The failure to properly repair or replace a damaged or flawed system or part can have serious adverse consequences, in which case the maintenance company may be legally liable.
If you or your loved one has suffered the trauma and injuries that accompany an aviation accident, a skilled and experienced attorney can help to identify whether the work of an outside contractor may have been a contributing factor.

Examples of Recoverable Damages
The reality is that airplane accidents are by nature quite serious, and even those that occur on the ground before takeoff and at comparatively low speeds can expose passengers to the risk of serious injuries. Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and bone fractures represent some of the possible outcomes of these tamer airplane accidents. It is not hard to understand, then, that there is a substantial likelihood of significant and deadly injuries in-flight or at higher speeds.
Examples of possibly recoverable damages when a maintenance company error causes an accident include:
- Medical bills
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional anguish
- Lost wages
- Loss of future income/earning potential
- Wrongful death
