Big Bear Lake Airplane Crash Wrongful Death Attorney

Why Do Airplanes Crash in Neighborhoods?

On May 1, 2023, there was a private airplane crash in Big Bear Lake, California. The airplane was a small private plane, whereby the crash killed three people, and did not injure anyone on the ground in the field where the plane landed after the accident. Many times, a small plane will fall out of the sky because of a pilot’s error. This is a broad category of excuses as to why a small private plane will crash into the ground, based on the errors of the pilot. A more detailed description of pilot error can include pilot deficiencies as related to:

  • Pilot inexperience
  • Difficult flight terrain
  • Distraction of the pilot
  • Pilot losing terrain
  • Poor pilot training for emergencies
  • Failure of airplane equipment
  • Inclement weather
  • Unstable approach to landing
  • Poor pilot judgment to land plane
  • Fuel runs out on plane
  • Intentionally descending below minimums
  • Not performing pre-flight checklists properly
  • Not checking weight and balance of aircraft prior to takeoff
  • Pilot physically losing control of the aircraft
  • Pilot unable to navigate mountainous terrain
  • Instrument meteorological conditions faulty
  • Errors continuing visual flight rules
  • Errors with in-flight judgments of the pilot
  • Passenger distracted pilot during flight
  • Uncontrollable passenger during flight
  • Engine failure
  • Landing gear failure
  • Structure welds do not hold
  • Wind shear or wind gusts
  • Collision with bird strike
  • Pilot mental errors
  • Failure to maintain proper mixture control
  • Flying too low an altitude
  • Flying and hitting power lines
  • Pilot impaired on alcohol or drugs
  • Student pilot errors on flights

Who Is at Fault When a Private Plane Crashes in an Accident?

The pilot making errors is usually the problem with a small private airplane crash in most instances. If you have loved ones who died because a pilot made mistakes and the small aircraft crashed, then you will want to find out exactly what happened in that case. Those types of airplane crashes will be investigated to determine the exact reason for the crash, but many private planes do crash for reasons related to pilot inexperience or pilot error in an emergency situation in the air. Sometimes too the aircraft may have been recently serviced by an aircraft mechanic, and if there were issues with how the airplane was repaired or serviced, then the aircraft mechanic may also have some liability as to the plane getting into an accident and having a crash later on for faulty repairs to the aircraft. We can help you review these scenarios, to get to the bottom of the claim itself, but that can only happen when you give us a call today at DTLA Law Group at 855.339.8879 right now. Our legal team is knowledgeable and ready to assist you, regarding your wrongful death claim for your loved ones, who perished in a small airplane crash and accident.

How Safe Are Small Airplanes from Crashing in an Accident?

Airplanes that are large and commercial in nature crash only rarely. But small private airplanes crash on a much more regular basis. In a larger airplane, there are many more redundant systems in place to help the pilot keep the plane in the air. In a smaller private airplane, when there is pilot error or a deficiency in the pilot’s skills, there is a greater chance of the airplane having a serious accident that will result in a major plane crash. Small aircraft pilots need to be highly trained, and have a highly developed level of proficiency to pilot a small airplane. In general, many small airplane pilots are commercial or military pilots who use their small airplanes after decades of intensive training and piloting. But a small aircraft pilot who has never flown in a bigger airplane may be at a major advantage. Pilot error is not a general category of mistakes that the pilots make when an airplane crashes, but it is a general problem with small aircraft accidents when all the passengers to the plane are killed in that type of accident. When you call us today, we can go over this information with you, and review your case for free right now.

What Are the General and Common Injuries Sustained in an Airplane Crash and Accident?
