Even though air travel is safer than freeway traffic, there are still thousands of aircraft accidents every year in the United States. In the worst case, people die, but in many other cases, they survive - some with injuries, others without.
Two people on their way to an Upland airport crashed in a field in Fontana when their single-engine plane experienced severe engine problems.
The pilot circled around the air until he found a safe place to land. The two escaped injuries when the plane overturned and came to rest with its landing gear in the air; the plane suffered major damage.
The National Transportation Safety Board and the FAA are investigating the cause of the accident to determine if there wasmechanical failure or pilot error.
These two people were very lucky to be able to walk out of the crashed plane unhurt. However, if you or a loved one has been injured in an airplane accident, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney and learn more about your legal rights and options available to you. You may be entitled to seek compensation for your injuries and other expenses incurred.
