Pilot in hospital after Cessna accident

Small plane and commercial airplane accidents occur in New York and across the United States. Whether due to a flaw in the plane design, a systems failure or a pilot's error, these accidents have the potential to cause significant destruction and loss of life. In some cases, a pilot's split-second decision in the face of a catastrophe can save lives.

A 65-year-old pilot of a single engine Cessna 182 is in the hospital recovering from injuries, including a broken back, that he obtained from a serious plane accident. Right before the plane crashed and flipped upside down, the pilot made a sudden decision that allowed the plane to land in a way that minimized impact. The plane contained two teen cadet passengers who are with the Civil Air Patrol, a division of the U.S. Air Force. The 14 and 15-year-old passengers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries and were later released.

The injured pilot has more than 20 years of experience in the air. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are currently investigating the cause of the incident.

When people are injured in airplane accidents, they may need to talk to an attorney regarding their rights and legal options. An attorney in New York may be able to answer questions and explore all potential routes of action. Victims of plane accidents may be eligible for compensation for their medical expenses and emotional suffering.
