Statistically, airplanes are still the safest way to travel. Nonetheless, because commercial airplanes carry over 9 million passengers each year for business and leisure trips, the probability of an airplane accident increases.
Design flaws, mechanical failures, extreme weather conditions and pilot error can all contribute to airplane accidents. When an airplane accident happens, the first priority is to investigate the cause.
While airplane disasters are rare, injuries suffered while onboard airplanes are more common. These include:
- Head and neck injuries due to falling luggage
- Arm and leg injuries due to beverage carts
- Trip-and-falls over loose carpeting in the aisles
