Surviving a Plane Crash

Statistics show that this disastrous accident rarely happens, and that the average American has a 1 in 11 million chance of dying in a plane crash. However, regardless if you are a frequent flyer or first time flyer being familiar with a few plane safety survival tips could keep you afloat and alive in the event of an emergency.

Planning and Dressing for Survival

Not all planes are the same, and they can even vary within an airline. It is important to read the safety briefing card on every flight as well as listen to the oral briefing of the flight attendant.

Something as simple as your wardrobe could help you better escape from an emergency. Avoid wearing flip flops and short skirts and shorts. Tennis shoes are a safer bet for having to run from a fire. Wearing material like jeans is best suited for evacuating via the airplane slide.

Brace Yourself

It is not always a crash that causes a turbulent landing. An emergency landing can also be very jolting. If there is a seat in front of you, cross your hands over the headrest and put your head to your hands. This will help prevent flailing around and possible whiplash.

If you or someone you know has been injured or killed in a commercial aviation crash, you could be entitled to recover damages for any losses you have suffered.
