Despite the increase in number of crashes, many people still prefer traveling in an airplane than in any other forms of transportation. Statistically, it is much safer to travel via airplane. However, while they may offer convenience, airplanes are still machines that are prone to malfunction and wear and tear. Airline companies need to ensure the safety of their passengers.
There are different laws that govern airline accidents. The liable persons in an aviation accident may either be the airline itself, the air traffic controller, and others. Negligence in airline companies can happen when the airline company falls short of the required standard of care for the passengers. This could endanger the life of individuals. Most accidents are due to human factors such as failure to communicate with air traffic controller, pilot error.
In an aviation accident, there are more than just one victim and casualties. The problem is that the others involved in an airline accident may not surface and sue the airline just like you.

They should be equipped with the necessary training and knowledge in order to be effective in driving.
