Defective Part May Have Caused Asiana Airlines Crash

Sacramento Wrongful Death lawyer

A recent investigation into this summers Asiana Airline Flight 215 crash suggests that an equipment malfunction may be the main source of the accident. The crash occurred as the airplane was approaching it’s landing. The pilots and the airline stated that they believe that there was an issue with the automatic throttle, which they thought was maintaining speed on the approach. However, they later discovered the throttle wasn’t properly connected to the engine. Now, after amore in-depth investigation, a representative from the NTSB notes that a defective throttle may in fact be a main factor in causing the accident.

If you have been harmed in an airplane crash, or any other type of serious personal injury accident, you should immediately consult with an experienced Sacramento accident lawyer. A top Sacramento injury lawyer can begin an investigation into all of the factors that may have led to an incident and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

The Asiana pilots’ have maintained that a key device that controls the Boeing 777′s speed may have malfunctioned. Where major accidents occur, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) may also conduct an investigation. Here, the NTSB officials are questioning whether the auto throttle was ever fully engaged. Inspectors found that the auto throttle had been “armed,” or made ready for activation were determining whether it had been engaged. Although many ways exist in which a pilot can engage and then inadvertently disengage an auto throttle, the South Korean air carrier and the pilots involved have raised the possibility with investigators that the auto throttle disengaged on its own.

While the results are not conclusive, if the incident was caused by a defective part or equipment malfunction, victims of the accident may be able to file a negligence lawsuit or wrongful death action based on product liability. Even if a defective part is not found to blame, other negligence causes of action may form the basis if a personal injury claim resulting from this accident.
