Mechanical defects and malfunction have resulted in over 20% of airplane accidents since the 1950s. A single flaw can cause a plane crash, which can claim hundreds of lives in an instant. To prevent this, it is important for airlines to schedule the maintenance and mechanical checks needed by the airplanes so that they can safely carry you to and from your destinations.
Unfortunately, pilots or airlines may decide to save time or cut costs by skipping required maintenance. This can lead to deadly defects.

Types of Flaws
Airplanes withstand wear and tear on every flight. Taking off and landing are both stressful on the plane’s structure, and flying at hundreds of miles per hour requires a lot of work from the engines. Structural malfunctions and mechanical failures can be due to design flaws, manufacturing defects, or even maintenance mistakes. Each of these issues can lead to devastating accidents. Some types of structural and mechanical flaws include:
- Landing gear malfunction that prevents the folding up or down of landing gear
- Tire defects on landing gear
- Brake malfunctions
- Faulty wing flaps
- Engine failure
- Malfunction of communication equipment
- Gauges or instruments that give faulty information
Many of these can be prevented with proper inspection and maintenance before flights. If an airline fails in this duty to you, you should fight back against this dangerous negligence.
If you have been hurt due to a plane defect, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help with your pain and suffering. To learn more, contact a Wisconsin airplane malfunction attorney from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 today.
