Air travel is a multi-billion dollar industry that transports millions of people all around the world every single year. As such, with thousands of planes in the sky at any given time, millions of people are required to work in this industry to make it happen. Whether you work as a flight crew member, traveling with passengers or payloads to and from their destinations, or you work as a ground crew member at your local airport, you face a unique set of challenges in your day-to-day duties.
Among those challenges is a significant injury risk. Not only do planes run the risk of injuring those inside, but those who work on them may find themselves exposed to toxic materials or have to lift heavy objects in order to load the cargo bay. Maintenance workers may have to handle extremely hot surfaces, or face the possibility of hearing loss due to the immense noise that jet engines can make. If you work in any of these industries and have been injured through the course of your work, you may be wondering what recourse is available to you, and what you can do to make sure you get the care you need while you recover.
