Plane Accidents in Michigan

Novi, MI – One Injured in Airplane CrashMichigan's aviation sector includes private planes, freight carriers, postal services, commercial flights, seaplanes, and leisure aircraft. It is not uncommon to witness a variety of these aircraft crisscrossing the skies on any given day. Air travel stands out as one of the safest modes of transportation. This high level of safety is attributed to the rigorous training and discipline required of pilots before they can receive their license, the strict maintenance standards for aircraft enforced by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the continual advancements in aeronautical technology.

Despite these precautions, accidents involving aircraft can still occur, occasionally leading to severe consequences, including the injury or loss of life. While incidents involving airplanes are relatively rare compared to other modes of transportation, it is noteworthy that flying in a single-engine aircraft carries a higher level of risk than traveling on a standard commercial jetliner. Statistics reveal that single-engine aircraft have a fatal accident rate of 1.63 per 100,000 flight hours. Additionally, these types of planes represent more than half of all accidents recorded in general aviation, with an average yearly accident rate for small single-engine aircraft documented at 30 accidents per 100,000 flight hours.

Most airplane crashes involve privately owned, smaller aircraft, and frequently, these tragic events could have been avoided. Common factors leading to such accidents include malfunctioning equipment or aircraft parts, mistakes made by pilots, oversight errors by federal air traffic controllers, issues related to the plane's construction or design, and inadequate maintenance of the aircraft.

When an aviation accident occurs, settlements are sought to cover the financial impact on the victim, as well as their physical and emotional distress, similar to other personal injury claims. These settlements aim to provide compensation to those affected by a crash that occurred through no fault of their own, covering medical expenses, lost wages, and other related costs.
