Aviation Accidents in El Paso, TX and New Mexico

The El Paso International Airport is the largest commercial airport in West Texas, and it serves travelers throughout western Texas, southern New Mexico, and northern Mexico. Due to the large numbers of aircraft and people that travel through El Paso, both major and minor incidents can occur in which people experience injuries. These may include:

  • Aircraft crashes or collisions - While major airplane disasters are relatively rare, a variety of more minor incidents can occur that may cause serious injuries to passengers. For example, planes may collide with each other while on the ground, or they may run off the end of a runway.
  • Mechanical failures - Airplanes and helicopters have a large number of complex systems designed to maintain safety. These components may fail because they are defective, because of improper maintenance, or because inspections were not performed correctly.
  • Negligent security - Even though airport security has become very strict in recent years, incidents still occur in which security personnel fail to properly screen dangerous individuals or address safety concerns. In some cases, an airline may be responsible for injuries caused by one passenger to another.
  • Pilot error - Plane and helicopter pilots must undergo a great deal of training, and they must follow the proper procedures to ensure that their passengers are safe. A pilot's failure to address safety risks, account for weather conditions, or communicate properly with air traffic controllers can result in incidents that cause serious harm to passengers.
