Plane accidents are not as common as we might have thought. Because they are so rare, somebody would have to take a flight every day for 55,000 before encountering a fatal accident. In 2016 across the entire world, only 325 people lost their lives. Private planes are most likely to encounter serious accidents like the one that happened this week.
Being involved in a plane accident might be one of the most traumatic and frightening experiences of your life. If you have been critically injured or somebody close to you is recovering from a plane accident, you might have rights and protections moving forward with your case.
