Continental Airlines 1404 Crash - December 21, 2008

The outcome of the crash of Continental Flight 1404 from Denver to Houston has striking resemblances to other aviation accidents involving aircraft abruptly leaving a runway or taxiway surface. In particular, the crash of American Airlines Flight 1420 in Little Rock, Arkansas and the crash landing of America West Flight 794 in Phoenix, Arizona are two accidents that had similar results. While an aircraft like the Boeing 737 involved in the 1404 crash has proved durable for the pressures of flight, it, like all aircraft, is poorly suited for abrupt impact with the ground. The breaking apart and fire that occurred in the 1404 accident is eerily similar to the AA 1420 and the AW 794 accidents. Fortunately, no one was killed in the 1404 crash, but many were injured physically and mentally. Not unlike an automobile crash, passengers on 1404 can expect that some symptoms, such as neck and back pain, to increase over time. Also, not to be underestimated or summarily dismissed are serious and real psychological injuries such as post traumatic stress disorder, commonly referred to as PTSD. Please contact us if you have any questions about or need additional information regarding the 1404 crash.
