Commercial Airline Accident Leaves Several Passengers and Crew Injured

by | February 21st, 2014

Laws and regulations are in place to ensure the safety of passengers who are traveling aboard commercial airliners; however, sometimes accidents still happen that result in people being injured. Take for instance the case of a Commercial Airline Accident that occurred in Montana earlier this week.

According to a story from KTVQ News, the incident occurred on Monday morning as Flight 1676 was descending towards the Billings Logan International Airport in the city of Billings. Reports indicate crew members were shocked when the aircraft suddenly and dramatically lost elevation. The event occurred with such force a woman was lifted out of her seat, causing her to strike her head on the bin above her so hard it cracked a panel.

The aircraft was able to land without further incident and three crew members and several passengers were transported to local trauma centers in order to receive further treatment to the wounds they endured.

So far, turbulence seems to be the consensus of what contributing factors were responsible for causing the incident.

The Aviation Accident Attorneys with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy are aware of how difficult it can be to overcome an injury sustained in an airplane accident. That is why the firm would like to wish each person who was recently hurt a full and speedy recovery.
