April Plane Crash in Afghanistan Caused by Possible Cargo Shift

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 3-Jun-2013

A cargo aircraft plane crash in Afghanistan near Kabul on April 29th, 2013, claimed the lives of the seven people aboard, officials reported.

Although a Taliban group claim responsibility for the Afghanistan plane crash, officials believe the crash may have actually stemmed from overloaded equipment. Cargo within the aircraft may have shifted during takeoff, causing the plane to become “tail heavy” and crash.

In situations where loads may have been in place improperly, those companies contracting help and training and hiring employees loading cargo may be liable for crashes or malfunctions caused by poor loading practices or improper procedures.
