With advances in technology, flying has become one of the safest ways to travel. Every day, tens of thousands of planes are in the air over the United States alone, and the vast majority of flights take off and land safely.
However, in the unlikely event of an airplane accident or crash, the results are usually devastating. Due to the nature of plane crashes, they frequently lead to severe injuries and death. Even those individuals who are fortunate enough to survive an airplane crash will likely have to deal with long-term disability and medical problems.
Passengers who are injured in an airplane crash are completely innocent victims and they deserve to receive financial compensation for any injuries that may take place. Likewise, the family members of those who have died in an airplane crash deserve compensation for the loss of their loved ones.
