Can safety products on airplanes have defects?

As a New York resident who has flown even once or twice in your life, you are likely familiar with the safety talk that flight attendants give at the beginning of every flight. Many of us take it for granted that the equipment being introduced in this talk will work as it should - but what if it doesn't? We at Kreindler & Kreindler, LLP, will take a look at safety product defects in airplanes today.

Naturally, due to the velocity and height at which a plane travel, methods for keeping passengers secured is of utmost importance. Seatbelts are one safety feature that everyone needs to have working as it should be. Even if you aren't involved in an actual crash, turbulence in the air can become so violent that passengers have been injured before if they aren't properly wearing their belts or if said belts aren't functioning properly. If they aren't holding you down right, you can easily bounce out of your seat and knock your head on nearby hard surfaces.

The oxygen masks and flotation devices are two other crucial pieces of safety equipment. If these aren't working properly in an emergency situation, it's all too possible for a victim to be unable to tread water, or for them to pass out due to a lack of oxygen in a depressurized or otherwise damaged cabin.

If your injuries from a plane-related incident were made worse because of defective safety equipment, you may want to take a look at our linked web page. You can learn more about what compensation options could be open to you, and how you can pursue damages moving forward.
