Learjet crash near New York City leaves 2 dead

While countless flights soar through the air each and every day without consequence, there are unfortunately situations that serve as a reminder that accidents do happen. While it’s important to keep in mind the fact that air travel is extremely safe overall, a recent accident serves as a reminder that aviation accidents unfortunately do occur. In the event of any type of accident, it’s also important to gain a full understanding of what occurred and see that justice is served.

Early reports state that two crew members on board a Learjet traveling from Philadelphia to Teterboro Airport in Carlstadt, New Jersey, are dead following a recent aviation accident. The plane crashed shortly before landing, less than a mile from the airport, striking three buildings and exploding in a parking lot. No one on the ground was injured or killed in the accident.

While it still remains to be seen what led to the deadly aviation accident since it will take some time for authorities to research and study the accident, there are many different factors that could have played a role, including but not limited to dangerous weather conditions, pilot error or negligence or maintenance issues.

The accident should serve as a stark reminder that while a vast majority of plane trips throughout the United States end without incident, accidents do happen. For those involved in such horrible situations, seeking an experienced attorney can help them form a solid plan of legal action. Nothing can replace the life of a loved one, but justice and proper compensation can allow for a more comfortable path toward normalcy.
