With more than 10 million trips a year, flying is still considered one of the safest forms of transportation. In fact, you are far safer on the plane than driving by car from any of our California highways, explains a lawyer in the state. However, while flying reliably safely, the Federal Aviation Administration's FAA report is the leading cause of personal injury during turbulence flight and unexpected decompression, appearances that unfortunately appear to be on the rise.
Recently, United Airlines flight from London to Los Angeles was diverted to Montreal for serious injuries sustained by ten people during extreme turbulence over the Atlantic Ocean. Passengers who were not physically injured were visibly shaken.
According to KABC news reports, there were about 200 passengers on Boeing 777 when he suddenly experienced severe turbulence. One of the main reasons why many passengers suffered serious injuries was a sign that the seat belt was inactive. One of the cops suffered a broken leg, and several injured passengers had a head trauma due to the fact that their heads hit the ceiling. In the United States, about 58-60 people per year are injured without warning the belt during the flight. Since 1980, American air carriers have participated in 234 accidents that have evolved, resulting in 298 serious injuries and 3 deaths.
In addition, about 40 to 50 fast disasters of airplane decompression occur each year. Last week, hundreds of people heard loud pop before a huge explosion broke a five-foot hole at one rate on the top of the hull. Travelers were afraid of their lives on a short flight from Phoenix, Arizona, to Sacramento, California. They only had a few seconds to find and put oxygen masks. The pilots had to take the aircraft to reach a safe altitude. Fortunately, only two people suffered injuries on this flight, according to local attorney. Although there are more cracks in Southwest B 737, this airline has no good safety record.
Since the Federal Aviation Act regulates aviation carriers, they take a high level of care for their passengers. The airline company and its employees are obliged to do whatever is reasonable to prevent injuries. Specifically, this is why the pilot usually discourages the cabin movement during the flight, illuminating the sign "secure the seat belt". While turbulence and sudden decompression are often unexpected, you can ensure your safety by always wearing a seat belt during the flight.
