Have you ever wondered why you felt sick after flying in an airplane? It’s possibly related to the contaminated air in the airplane.
Airplane air travel sickness or illness lawsuits are filed on behalf of people affected by this syndrome. It is a personal injury and you may have been poisoned by the air while flying. We are investigating the case and want to hear from you if you became ill as a result of your commercial air travel. Contact us by filling out the form on this page or calling 817-455-6822.
Exposure to Contaminated Air and Toxic Fumes
For the most part, the methods for recirculating air are perfectly fine and mostly pose no health risks to the average flyer. However, when the manifolds leak or develop holes, there are major health risks to the passengers, it can be like standing in front of a fan while someone opens a bottle of motor oil and forces you to inhale the toxic fumes. Hundreds and even thousands of viscous chemicals primarily from the jet fuel are then mixed in with the compressed air that passengers breathe in.
The methods for circulating air throughout the cabin of an airplane have not changed since its creation. Developed in the 1950s, the systems compress outside air with the help of a jet’s turbine engine, and then “bleed” it into a manifold for mixing with recirculated cabin air. The problems can come, plaintiffs’ attorneys and some researchers say, when engine seals start to leak.
The worst part about this is that you would most likely never be able to see or smell this problem. The chemicals that enter the cabin are colorless and odorless carbon monoxide gas that can cause serious neurological damage and even death.
Do You Have These Illnesses or Symptoms?
If you are a frequent flyer or just recently flew on a plane and feel like you were sick, dizzy, light headed, had a sore throat, had to see a doctor after flying, or just have any questions, please contact our firm as you may have a case.
Billions of people fly on planes every year and if this is happening to you, it very well could be happening to your friends and loved ones. If you suspect someone needs our help, please contact us immediately by filling out this form or calling directly at 817-455-6822.
Attention Airline Employees
For those of you who are employees of the airline industries or know someone that may have been affected by contaminated air, please contact us. This airborne illness especially applies to airline workers. While an everyday passenger can become exposed, it is exponentially more likely for pilots or flight attendants to become susceptible to aerotoxic syndrome. There have already been cases of pilots fainting while flying, or even developing neurological issues that have caused them to lose their jobs and retire for medical reasons.
In response, the aircraft manufacturers, such as Boeing, have denied its planes are responsible for such injuries and that aerotoxic syndrome is just a phenomena.
We all would hope that they would take every precaution to ensure their customer and employees’ lives are being protected, however the reality is that along the way mistakes are made and when it affects peoples’ livelihood there needs to be a stand. That is what we are here to do for you, so please fill out the form or call us at 817-455-6822 if you think you or a loved one is at risk.
