Making a claim for aviation accidents

Most would agree that the most serious type of aviation accident is a plane crash. Thankfully, these are very rare. Unfortunately though, other types of on-board accidents do still happen from time to time. A passenger may be hurt by luggage falling from one of the overhead compartments, or suffer a fall or injury during severe turbulence. Becoming ill mid-flight as a result or food that has been inadequately prepared or stored is another potential hazard.

Passengers are also at risk of injury when they are on the tarmac, as well as while entering or exiting the plane itself. These types of injuries are often a direct result of negligence or carelessness on the part of airport workers and flight attendants.

If you have suffered an illness or injury related to air travel (either on the plane or while boarding/disembarking) then you may have a claim. Depending on the specific circumstances of your case, it may be possible to bring a claim against the airport, the airline, the aircraft supplier or even the holiday provider. We also handle claims concerning more extreme aviation accidents, such as plane crashes.
