Arrest on a Sacramento Airplane Flight

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento airplane accident lawyer. A disturbance on a Southwestern flight that departed from Portland and was on its way to Sacramento resulted in an arrest of one of the passengers on December 9. The woman was placed under arrest and taken to a jail in Sacramento County with $75,000 bail and is scheduled for an arraignment hearing this afternoon.

Delta Turbulence-Avoidance App May Help Reduce Injuries

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Airplane Crash Lawyer. At the beginning of August, we covered the emergency landings and injuries of a JetBlue flight bound for Sacramento that landed after encountering severe turbulence. Twenty-two passengers and two members of the flight crew were injured before the plane made an emergency landing in Rapid City, South Dakota. This was just one of the estimated 5,500 reports of “severe or greater” turbulence US flights encounter each year. Two weeks ago, though, Delta Airlines introduced a new mobile app which may help decrease the number of turbulence-related injuries in some areas.
