Fort Lauderdale Aviation Accident Lawyer

Fort Lauderdale injury lawyer David I. Fuchs has over 20 years of experience in successfully representing airplane accident victims in the Ft Lauderdale area, their families and friends who have died or sustained and suffered serious bodily injuries because of negligence by an aircraft carrier, the flight crew, maintenance staff, the Federal Aviation Administration or air traffic controllers.

Many people are afraid of heights and flying, however traveling via airplanes is one of the safest methods of transportation available. A great deal of caution, regulation, and protocol have created and maintained high industry standards which keeps the percentages of serious injury and death caused by airplane accidents down. Though less likely to occur, the results of an airplane accident are just as devastating to the families of the victims as any other accident. When airline accidents do occur, they typically involve mass casualties and occur because of pilot error or mechanical malfunctions.

Airline Safety Tips

Following the events of September 11, 2001,  there has been a variety of changes in the air travel in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world. The following are safety tips to keep in mind for airplane travel:

  • By selecting non-stop flight itineraries, you lessen the occurrences of the takeoffs, ascent, descent, and landing phases of your trip.
  • Select larger aircraft when flying. Larger aircraft adhere to the strictest regulation and offer the best conditions for passenger survival.
  • During preflight briefings, pay close attention. Be sure that you are aware of the locations of the closest emergency exits.
  • Be sure to keep overhead storage bins as light and organized as possible.
  • Your seat belt should be fastened all times, often turbulence occurs at unexpected times.
  • Listen to the Flight Attendants, even if you are a frequent flyer because they are there for your safety.
  • Do not bring hazardous materials to the airport or on the plane.
  • Do not drink to the point of incapacity.
  • Keep your wits about you during emergency situations.

Apart from a crash, turbulence is a significant cause of in-flight injuries. Turbulence happens and much of the time it is unpredictable. And when it does happen, adults and children who are not buckled up can be seriously injured. According to the FAA, the majority of turbulence-related injuries and deaths occur when the seat belt sign is on. The following advice should keep you from becoming one of those statistics.
