Common Plane Crash Injuries

Plane Accidents Today

Recently, there have been a slew of reports concerning airplanes having issues that either lead to mechanical failures that "down" the aircraft or cause the plane to crash, both of which are the worst-case scenarios for anyone flying. These failures come about for a number of reasons, including typical wear-and-tear, insufficient repairs to failing parts, or lack of response by airlines to repair or replace planes that are in need of these fixes. No matter the reason, when a plane experiences an issue while passengers are on board, everyone in the plane is in danger of being injured or killed.

While, statistically speaking, flying is still the safest way to travel, these new reports and accidents are alarming to many, and it begs the question of whether or not these issues will be more common as time goes on. When you are in a plane, there are certain expectations of safety, and so when those expectations aren't met, you can be left feeling frustrated at the situation you now face. These accidents aren't simple, and the injuries associated with them often aren't simple either. Following a plane accident, it's important to seek the help of a personal injury lawyer who can discuss your case with you and help you figure out the next best course of action to recover fully from your accident.

What Injuries Can You Sustain in a Plane Accident?

Injuries that come from plane accidents vary quite a bit and can cause lasting damage, depending on their severity. Some of these injuries include:

Due to the forces involved in these accidents, this act alone can be enough to break a bone, which is a painful injury that needs medical attention. If you suspect you broke a bone in a plane crash, go have it looked at to ensure that it will heal correctly.

Burst eardrum: Your eardrum is an important part of your body, allowing you to hear properly. When the pressure in your ear and outside of your ear change rapidly and are at different levels, it can cause your eardrum to rupture, which is a serious injury. If a plane loses altitude quickly or loses pressure in the cabin, this injury can occur. This injury is quite painful and will require care from a medical professional to ensure it heals correctly, which means doctor visits and bills for you.

Head injury: When you brace for a plane crash, you are usually putting your head down behind the seat in front of you. If you hit your head on this seat in a crash, you will probably end up with a concussion or other head injury, which should be seen by a medical professional. Don't allow a head injury to go without medical attention, as these injuries can be very serious.
