Although commercial airline travel is the safest form of transportation, injuries aboard a plane can still occur. Most of these in-flight injuries are caused by sudden turbulence and even though turbulence is a common occurrence during any flight, serious turbulence can be dangerous. On June 20, 2017, 10 people were injured on a United Airlines flight from Panama City, Panama to Houston, Texas due to severe turbulence near Cancun, Mexico. Although the plane landed safely in Houston, all 10 people were taken to local hospitals.
Commercial airlines have a duty to protect passengers and to provide safe flying conditions. Firm Partner Mo Aziz and John McKay from Park Avenue Law, LLC, in Winter Park, Florida are currently representing a woman in Texas who has been injured in-flight. This woman was on an American Airlines flight and was in the bathroom when turbulence struck. She was violently thrown around and sustained numerous injuries.
