Common Types of Long Island Plane Accidents

Most people imagine devastating crashes when they think of plane accidents. However, these are not the only types of Long Island plane accidents that may occur. Other examples include:

  • Accidents on board a plane resulting from defective or improperly maintained components, such as seats
  • Food poisoning
  • Accidents resulting from inadequate security
  • Accidents at the airport, such as slip and falls

A Long Island plane accident may occur because an airline, airport, or similar party was negligent and failed to take reasonable measures to protect your safety and the safety of others. If this happens, victims should be compensated accordingly.

Do you believe you were injured or a loved one lost their life in an accident caused by another party? Review your case with the experts at our Long Island personal injury law firm—you may be entitled to compensation.

Common Causes of Long Island Plane Accidents

Long Island plane accidents may occur for numerous reasons. They include:

Pilot intoxication

Operating a plane while intoxicated is highly irresponsible. Sadly, sometimes pilots are intoxicated on the job.

Even mild intoxication can significantly interfere with a pilot’s judgment. For example, an intoxicated pilot may be more likely to underestimate the potential risks of flying in dangerous weather conditions. They also might be less alert to safety warnings and other such factors.


Planes consist of many components and systems. If a plane’s designer or manufacturer overlooks a single defect, a major accident can occur.

Airline negligence

Negligence on the part of an airline can take a range of forms. They include:

  • Not properly maintaining a plane
  • Allowing a plane to take off without sufficient fuel
  • Hiring unqualified pilots or ground crew personnel
  • Failure to explain safety procedures

Pilot error

A pilot does not need to be intoxicated to make a careless error that results in a Long Island plane accident. For example, a distracted pilot could forget to perform key tasks during pre-flight safety checks.

Air traffic control error

Air traffic controllers play a critical role in keeping passengers and staff on planes safe. Accidents can happen when they direct pilots to land on a crowded runway, provide pilots with incorrect information, fail to monitor air traffic, and more.

Airport negligence

A Long Island plane accident does not need to involve an accident on or near a plane. It can also involve an accident at the airport.

Perhaps you were injured at an airport because you tripped over an item that had fallen to the floor and should have been removed by the time your accident occurred. The airport, retail store, or restaurant renting space in the airport may be the liable party responsible for compensating you in this scenario.

Identifying Potentially Liable Parties

There are many parties aside from those already mentioned whose negligence can theoretically cause a Long Island plane accident.

The complexities of Long Island plane accidents underscore the importance of hiring a qualified Long Island personal injury lawyer when seeking compensation. Shulman & Hill has the vast resources to thoroughly investigate your accident and identify potentially responsible parties.

The Consequences of a Long Island Plane Accident

You may face numerous difficulties after a Long Island plane accident. They include:

  • Injuries that require expensive medical treatment
  • Injuries that interfere with your ability to work and earn a paycheck
  • Considerable physical pain and suffering
  • Long-term challenges that will affect your quality of life, such as paralysis or impaired cognition
  • Losing a loved one

You may be eligible for compensation for your losses if a negligent party caused your accident to happen. Optimize your chances of reaching a fair settlement by working with Shulman & Hill’s Long Island plane accident attorneys.

How Our Long Island Plane Accident Law Firm Can Help

An attorney can play an important role in determining the outcome of your case. Specific ways we help include:

Investigating the accident

A thorough investigation of your accident may involve:

  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Obtaining and reviewing available footage and photos
  • Reviewing maintenance logs
  • Reviewing airline and airport employee backgrounds

Our goal when conducting an investigation is to help identify the liable parties and collect evidence that shows how their negligence may have caused the accident.

Filing a lawsuit

When the liable parties have been properly identified, you may be able to seek compensation by filing a lawsuit.

You need to focus on your recovery in the aftermath of a Long Island plane accident. Our Long Island personal injury attorneys will handle the process of putting together a strong case that thoroughly documents your losses and provides substantial evidence showing negligence.


An insurance company will potentially offer less compensation than you may be entitled to if you attempt to recover compensation on your own. You have a much greater chance of settling for an appropriate amount if you are represented by legal experts who understand how to negotiate effectively.
