There are hundreds of thousands of people working for commercial airlines across the United States in all different capacities. It is not surprising that Workers’ Compensation claims within the aviation industry are common. Airline workers and airport employees sustain injuries not only in the air but also inside the terminal, on the tarmac and in administrative positions.
It’s important to note that the aviation industry is comprised of more than just pilots and flight attendants. Airlines and airports also employ baggage handlers, ground service workers, airplane mechanics, ground crews, hangar employees, shuttle bus drivers, airport terminal maintenance workers, food service workers, ticketing clerks, and office/administrative personnel. All of these airline industry workers are entitled to Pennsylvania Worker’s Compensation benefits in the event of a workplace accident.
The types of workplace injuries can vary greatly for airline industry employees. Some commonplace airport worker injuries include:
Back and neck injuries
Brain and head injuries
Elbow, shoulder, or knee injuries
Occupational related, noise-induced hearing loss
Broken bones or orthopedic injuries
Strains and sprains
Repetitive use injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
Soft tissue injuries
