Most people tend to understand that statistically speaking, flying is safer than travel by vehicle on the highway. While this is technically true in the most numerical sense, that doesn't mean that plane crashes don't happen and that when they do disaster doesn't follow. Tragically, four people were killed in a recent Arizona plane crash in , and plane crash lawyers in Arizona have been busy helping those who have either been harmed or lost someone they loved for some time as a result of these occurrences.

Causes of Arizona Plane Crashes

There are any number of reasons that an Arizona plane crash will occur, but when experts review them at length, there are generally a few causes that are more common than others. These include:

  • Pilot error
  • Defective design of the airplane
  • Maintenance error
  • Equipment malfunction
  • Weather

Many things can go wrong when someone takes off in an airplane, and any one of these things can lead to instant disaster in the form of serious, permanent injuries and/or fatalities.

Too Early to Know What Happened with this Arizona Plane Crash

In regards to the most recent Arizona plane crash, and all-too-familiar pattern is playing out. That pattern begins with a signal of trouble from the cockpit, a loss of contact with the vessel, a violent crash that involves a heavy explosion and enormous amounts of smoke and then little if anything that's left behind to help experts determine the cause. That appears to be the case with the crash that occurred last week, and it could take some time to determine the cause because the wreckage was burned so badly that it was impossible to make progress in terms of gathering evidence.

However, it's also common for authorities to ultimately decipher the cause of an Arizona plane crash.
