Florida Airplane Accident Attorney
Traveling by airplane is arguably one of the safest methods of transportation; however, as with any method of transportation, there are still risks involved with flying. Airplane crashes, including commercial aircraft and private aircraft, can result in catastrophic consequences and grief for the crew, passengers and their families. Aviation wrecks may also impact people living near the crash site.
Approximately 96,112 passengers travel through the Orlando International Airport each day and 35,100,000 passengers travel via MCO annually. There are 813 recorded arrivals and departures each day and the number is only expected to increase.
It is estimated that by 2023, at least 1 billion people will fly as passengers every year. Even though air travel is arguably one of the safest means of transportation, risks are still involved. For instance, the increase in numbers of commercial aircraft and private aircraft may contribute to a correlated increase in airplane accidents. The accident rate on private planes is up 20% from the year 2000.
If you have been seriously injured as a result from a plane crash, whether as a passenger or hurt by the impact of living near a crash site, our Florida aviation accident attorneys may be able to help you recover compensation for your losses. Call us at (888) 444-8508 today.
The Federal Aviation Administration, the United States Department of Transportation agency that oversees all aspects of United States civil aviation, including aircraft, airplane, and airline travel, forecasts that the number of commercial flights and passenger volume is expected to climb; by 2023, more than 1 billion passengers will fly every year.
An increased amount of flights and passengers may contribute to a correlating increased risk of airplane accidents in the air and on the runway. Whether the plane is a large commercial airplane, helicopter, prop plane, private jet or other aircraft, these accidents may result in burn injuries, traumatic brain injuries, or even death.
