When can someone be held responsible for an aviation accident?
A person or company can be held responsible for aviation accidents in cases where it can be proven that they owed a duty of care to the injured party and neglected to properly perform that duty, thereby endangering others. Examples of this include an airline company that neglects to perform proper maintenance on their aircraft, a pilot who decides to fly under the influence of alcohol or while significantly fatigued, and an airline or pilot making the decision to fly in extremely bad weather.

Who can be held liable for an aviation accident?
Depending on what the cause of the accident was, varying parties may be held liable for the damages caused to those injured in the accident. If the accident was the result of pilot error or negligence, the pilot is likely the one against whom action will be taken. On the other hand, if a defect or malfunction in the airplane caused the accident, the airline, airplane manufacturer, or airplane designer may be the responsible party.
