Three Injured During Turbulence

Many people are afraid of flying. It is a very common problem and many people avoid it altogether. The fear of crashing can be irrational since it isn’t a common occurrence, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other ways that you can be injured on an airplane.

United Airlines was flying a group of people from Denver to Billings when it ran into severe turbulence. The plan was descending to the Billings Logan International Airport when it happened and the plane experienced a sharp drop in altitude that caught everyone in the plane off guard, caused some to panic, and resulted in three people being injured.

The three injured people were sent to the hospital. The injuries resulted from the people hitting the panels above their heads in the sharp descent. This is reminiscent of the injury that killed Billy Mays, the Sham Wow spokesman, a few years ago.

Airline travel is a particularly controversial topic when it comes to injuries. There have been plenty of lawsuits after crashes happen, but to handle a less severe injury you need a more skilled lawyer. The personal injury attorneys at Stokes & Kopitsky have the experience that it takes. The airport in Atlanta is the busiest in the country, meaning they have had plenty of time to hone their skill and learn what it takes to fight the insurance companies and the company lawyers to get you every penny that you have earned due to someone else’s mistakes. Don’t hesitate to make a call and schedule a consultation if you have recently been on a flight and suffered an injury as a result.
