Injury evaluation of passengers and crew members in aviation incidents poses a unique set of challenges. Several of BRC's consultants in this area are qualified pilots, Board Certified in Aerospace Medicine and have years of experience investigating aviation events in the commercial, military/government (NASA), and civilian sectors. Evaluated issues involve injury causation, assessment of pain and suffering, and other physiological aspects associated with the passengers and crew.
Representative cases include:
• Pan Am Flight 103 Crash in Lockerbie, Scotland (1988)
• Space Shuttle Columbia Disaster (2003)
• Comair Flight 5191 Crash in Lexington, Kentucky (2006)
