Aviation Accident Injuries

Statistically, travel by airplane or other aircraft is the safest form of travel. Tragically, plane crashes do occur, and when they do, the consequences are extremely serious. Aviation accidents involve tremendously fast speeds and impacts much greater than any Massachusetts motor vehicle accident. If you or someone you know has been seriously injured in any type of aviation accident, you have legal rights under Massachusetts and federal laws that should be protected by a qualified Boston, MA aviation accident injury lawyer.

NTSB data for recent years shows that there are over 1,300 airplane crashes annually. Of these airplane accidents, over 1,000 involve serious injuries but no fatalities. Of the helicopter accidents which occur in the United States each year, approximately one hundred helicopter accidents involve bodily injury while an estimated twenty five result in wrongful death. These statistics indicate that Massachusetts travelers are more likely to be injured than killed in a Massachusetts aviation accident. This fact, however, does not detract from a realization that the types of Massachusetts personal injuries sustained in aviation accidents are most often very severe and catastrophic.

The types of Massachusetts injuries sustained in airplane and helicopter crashes tend to be critical. Aviation accident injuries can include:

  • Massachusetts amputations – Many plane crash injuries result in severe damage to the limbs. Quite frequently, limbs can be severed in the airplane crash or require amputation.

  • Massachusetts brain injuries – Airplane crashes are sudden and unexpected. These crashes result in impacts to the head from the hull of the aircraft, seats, flying debris and even other passengers. Depending on the severity of the impact, serious brain injuries can occur.

  • Massachusetts burn injuries – A common result of aircraft accidents is a fire or explosion. Because of this, many injured victims suffer Massachusetts burn injuries. Massachusetts burns can leave the victim with disfiguring and permanent scars and can potentially lead to life-threatening infections.

  • Massachusetts cuts, bruises and other wounds – In the aftermath of a plane crash, wounds from broken glass, loose debris and even impalement from metal objects are common in victims.

  • Massachusetts fractures – Broken bones are typical as a result of impact and inertia.

  • Massachusetts spinal cord injuries – The impact of an aviation accident will usually displace the passenger from their space on the aircraft. This displacement puts Massachusetts victims at risk for a severe spinal cord injury. Any injury to the spinal cord places the victim in danger of partial or full paralysis.
