British Airways pilots suing the airline because of injuries sustained by looking at a security camera

A group of British Airways pilots are suing the airline because they claim they have sustained neck and spinal injuries by being forced to constantly twist around in the cockpit to look at a security camera monitor.

If a pilot cannot turn their neck and back to look behind their seat why are they flying? If their health and physical shape is so poor how can they work an emergency and reach back for the fire extinguisher?

It should be possible to move the display to something forward. Maybe even place the display on the flight crew tablet. The control would have to stay standalone for security reasons.

I was blasted by the EU folks who claimed only in America can we sue for ridiculous things and that such trivial lawsuits would never happen in the EU. I guess those trivial lawsuit lawyers finally settled across the pond.
