    Aeroplane accident


    Aeroplane accident figures

    They say an aeroplane accident is far less likely to occur than say a road or rail accident. The available statistics do back this up, which is something we can perhaps take comfort in. Despite the ranting of the doom and gloom brigade, a plane accident is a lot more survivable than you might think. Clearly, if an “incident” were to occur at 35,000 feet above sea level, chances of survival are slim. But a plane accident if it does occur is statistically more likely to happen around take-off or landing. This puts the plane closer to or even on the ground and vitally, within reach of the emergency services based at the airport. Figures for 2010 make for interesting reading…

    • The accident rate was equal to 1 accident In 1.4 million flights
    • 2.4 billion people flew safely
    • The number of flights totalled 36.8 million

    No airline can guarantee 100% safety but with the constant development of aircraft and the way they are regulated, a plane accident is far less likely today than it was in the 1950s when jet airliners first took flight. It’s quite possible to emerge from a plane accident with cuts and bruises or the sort of injury one might associate with a car crash.

    Aeroplane accident compensation

    If you were to suffer an injury in a plane accident, it would not be unreasonable to assume that compensation might be sought. This is where companies like Accident Advice Helpline can be of help. They are an established advice and compensation provider with in excess of 10 years of experience. Whether injured in a plane accident, car accident, industrial accident or in any incident where a third party has been negligent, they can help. And, unlike the airlines, they do offer a 100% guarantee, a guarantee of no win, no fee*.

    Budget airlines have enabled the masses to spread across European skies in pursuit both of business and pleasure. Commuting by plane is not unknown and even with this substantial increase in air traffic the plane accident is seldom a feature of the news.

    So it is with the idea that a plane accident may occur, placed well back in the farthest reaches of the mind that the modern traveller takes to the air. All this is now possible at lower risk and lower cost. The traveller can also take comfort in the fact that Accident Advice Helpline exists to assist, should the unthinkable occur.
