Nearly 1,000 people were killed in airplane accidents in 2014 worldwide, which was the most since 2005, according to statistics obtained by CNBC. As safe as air travel has become, these statistics may go to show that there is still far too much room for error considering how many people are losing their lives on an annual basis in aviation accidents.

What Should I Do If I’m the Victim of an Airplane Accident?

The aftermath of plane crashes as well as many other types of airplane accidents is chaotic, with even the trained professionals on the scene failing to get things completely right in many cases. Priority number one if you’re in an aviation accident should be getting yourself and others to safety and ensuring those who need it, yourself included, receive medical attention as soon as possible. Beyond that, if it’s safe and only once you’ve been medically cleared to do so, it may be in your best interest to:

  • Write down notes about the incident
  • Take pictures of the accident scene and your injuries
  • Keep a journal of your medical treatment and condition following the incident
  • Collect contact information of witnesses and fellow victims if any
  • Do not talk to an airline’s insurance company or their attorneys until you have spoken to an experienced aviation lawyer

    “Mr. Glotzer represented me after I was involved in a car accident. I was badly injured,but the insurance company refused to offer me a reasonable settlement. I decided to find an attorney and decided to hire Josh.

    His law firm did a great job on my case. They were very responsive to all my questions and obtained a great resolution for me. I received way more money than was originally offered. I would recommend their firm to friends and family.”
