Pennsylvania Aviation Injury Attorneys
Every year, millions of people fly on airplanes and helicopters in the United States. While the odds of an accident are very small compared to motor vehicle travel, several thousand passengers and crew are injured every year, and dozens are killed, according to the National Transportation Safety Board.
