Illinois Job Accident Attorneys for Victims of Airline Injuries

Working in an airport requires patience and experience. There are thousands of passengers that travel through many of Illinois' airports each day. During holidays, thousands of travelers fly in and out of airports on an hourly basis. Airline workers are constantly subjected to workplace pressures to meet the increased demand during these times. While many view the increased obligations as an opportunity to earn additional wages, there are many dangers associated with working in an airport that are heightened when there are increased performance obligations. If you are a flight attendant, baggage handler, or any other airport personnel that are the subject of a workplace injury contact Newland & Newland, LLP for experienced representation.

Flight Attendant Injuries

Flight attendants are a large portion of airline workers filing workers compensation claims. Flight attendants commonly suffer from neck, shoulder, and back injuries. One common reason for neck injuries is turbulence on flights. Turbulence has been known to cause whiplash and flight attendants are more at risk due to their repetitive exposure to turbulence and the fact that they are not using seat belts during large portions of a flight. Another common reason for filing workers' compensation claims are shoulder and back injuries. These injuries are often related to helping customers who need assistance with maneuvering their luggage in and out of the overhead compartments. If you are a flight attendant and have been injured on the job, contact one of our experienced attorneys today.

Baggage Carrier Injuries

Baggage Carriers are another major group of airline workers that experience workplace injuries. These injuries are the result of pressure to maximize efficiency, ensure timely travel, and ensure productivity. Unfortunately, these pressures typically create an ideal environment for workplace injuries. The injuries prohibit baggage carriers from performing the essential functions of the job. Undisclosed injuries often lead to unintended consequences, typically the loss of employment, as injured employees fail to perform as expected. Shortly thereafter, these employees are terminated for poor performance.

After an injury, baggage carriers should notify the appropriate personnel to ensure that their injuries are documented. In addition, you should speak with a qualified attorney at Newland & Newland, LLP as soon as possible to determine your rights and protect them while you heal.
