Cabin crews on planes have a duty of care for everyone on board any flight. Stewards are required to be alert at all times to attend to the needs of passengers – ironically, someone suffering from the effects of a plane aisle fall would be one such emergency. The damage done in such an accident can be more severe than you might imagine and it is why sometimes a plane aisle fall leads to four-figure compensation.
What are the potential longer-term effects of a plane aisle fall?
A plane aisle fall may seem innocuous compared to other potential injuries. But there are several reasons why the long-term outcome could be more problematic. Where an individual had previously relied upon flying, say for business reasons, experiencing an accident can be traumatic.
Aside from the physical harm that can be caused, there can be a considerable psychological impact. The individual can feel that post-traumatic stress has eroded their confidence, making them far more anxious about travelling in this way in the future. This can have a knock-on effect on their ability to perform their job properly.
