Common Aviation Workplace Injuries

You already know it’s possible for those who work in the aviation industry to be harmed in crashes. However, many of the injuries aviation workers sustain develop over years as a result of wear and tear. Aviation workers like mechanics, builders, and technicians may develop such injuries as:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

Aviation workers in a variety of roles can also sustain acute injuries resulting from accidents. Examples of such injuries include (but aren’t limited to):

This isn’t an exhaustive list. If you work in this field and you’ve been injured at work, or you’ve developed a health condition you believe is related to your work, schedule a consultation at our Los Angeles aviation workplace injury law firm.

Potential Causes of Los Angeles Aviation Workplace Injuries

Aviation workers can sustain injuries for many reasons. Examples include:

  • Slipping and falling on spills or tripping over obstructions at an airport, on a plane, etc.
  • Developing injuries over time as a result of constantly handling heavy baggage
  • Attempting to lift disabled passengers to help them in or out of their seats
  • Being struck by vehicles or similar equipment
  • Being struck by falling heavy baggage
  • Being injured in severe turbulence

Research also indicates that flight attendants may struggle with weakened immune systems as they adapt to traveling constantly. This, combined with the fact that they work in enclosed environments where the indoor air quality may not be ideal, can increase their chances of contracting illnesses.

How a Los Angeles Aviation Workplace Injury Attorney Can Help

California law requires employers to purchase workers’ compensation insurance. If you’re an aviation worker who’s been injured in a work-related accident or who’s developed a health condition due to the nature of your work, you can seek financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and potentially certain other economic losses by filing a claim for workers’ compensation benefits.

Strongly consider enlisting the help of a lawyer when doing so. A Los Angeles aviation workplace injury attorney can assist you by:

  • Investigating your accident to prove it was work-related (as the insurance company might otherwise try to argue your accident occurred when you were off-the-clock)
  • Keeping track of your various compensable losses to determine how much compensation you might deserve to recover
  • Negotiating with your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier if their initial settlement offers are too low
