In-Flight Airline Injuries
Seasoned Philadelphia Aviation Accident Attorneys
Airline injuries and accidents have been growing in frequency over the past few years. In general, the pilot of an aircraft is in command and responsible for the safety of the passengers and crew of the aircraft as designed by federal aviation regulations. When pilots fail to keep their passengers safe to the best of their ability and a passenger is injured, you may need a Philadelphia aviation accident lawyer to hear your case.

Aircraft Passenger Injury During Flight
If you are injured on an airplane during a flight and can prove that the resulting damages occurred solely as a result of the carelessness and negligence of the airline and / or employees, you are entitled to a financial recovery.
The airline may be held responsible if any of the below regulations are violated:
- All airline passengers must have a safe path of egress from their seats to the restrooms or throughout the aircraft.
- The airline shall not permit a dangerous condition to exist on the airplane when they knew or should have known of the defect.
- All airplane agents or employees shall be properly trained, instructed, and informed with regard to safety issues and observing, detecting, and remedying possible hazardous conditions on the aircraft.
- All aircraft passengers should be instructed concerning the safe use and storage of luggage and loose materials on the aircraft.
- All passengers should be prohibited from creating hazardous conditions for other passengers on the aircraft.
- All aircraft should have a sufficient number of flight attendants to ensure proper and safe management and inspection of the aircraft.
The role played by cabin attendants on the aircraft is extraordinarily important because they are closest to the passengers. The airline crew must and should be aware of all safety issues and possess a degree of expertise in responding to potentially dangerous conditions.
All airline pilots are required to receive crew resource management training, which augments technical flight and ground training with human factor subjects. The pilot in command of the aircraft is the authority or sentry in charge of providing a means of safety for all individuals onboard the aircraft.
