Plane Crashes Into Hudson

Posted under Uncategorized

Are plane crashes as dangerous as people think?  In other words, if you were to get in to a plan e crash, should it be assumed that you will most likely die?  In short, the answer is no.  Although plane crashes are extremely dangerous, you should not think you are plummeting to your death if you happen to find yourself in that circumstance. 

According to a recent study:

95.7 % of people survive a plane crash.  And:

 National Transportation Safety Board declared between the years between 1983 and 2000 involving 53,487 passengers, they found that 51,207 survived. That’s 95.7 percent.

Therefore, when you are in a plane crash, you are not necessarily doomed. 

A good example of this is when a plane crashed a couple of days ago.   Apparently, 1 of the engines on the 2-engine A US Airways Jet plane exploded minutes after take-off crashed in to the Hudson River.  The plane was forced to make an emergency landing in to the icy waters of the Hudson River in New York City. 

No one was seriously injured, but there were injuries, some physical some emotional. 

It is a miracle that nobody was killed during this plane crash.  Although no death count was necessary, those that were injured still have the right to seek compensation for their traumatic experiences, and for the injuries they acquired.  Please contact your personal injury lawyer at 800-242-2874 for more information on these matters.
