Sudden Stop Injuries

Sudden Stop Injury

Commercial airliners, due to their lengthwise design, mass, and high rate of speed build up a tremendous amount of forward pressing energy while in flight. This inertia can pose one of the most serious threats to passenger safety in the event of an emergency landing or a plane crash as the airplane is brought to a sudden stop when it makes contact with a fixed object, body of water, or other obstruction. The injuries that result from a rapid deceleration are likely to require substantial medical attention and may even cause lasting physical and emotional harm.

Depending upon the circumstances surrounding the accident that led to your injuries, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your medical bills and other damages.

Common Injuries

Despite the proper use of safety belts and attainment of the designated crash landing position, the sheer force of an airplane’s sudden stop is virtually guaranteed to result in serious injury for some or all of the passengers on board. The seats and seatbelts themselves may actually cause some wounds, even though they are intended to prevent harm. Common injuries associated with sudden stopping include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Severe lacerations and contusions
  • Bone fractures
