I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and can’t thank you enough for all the hard work that you put in. Everything went so smoothly and all I had to do was sign some papers and everything was taken care of. Anytime I had any concerns I knew I could call and my mind was always put at rest. You can never know how much this means to me and I am so grateful. If anything ever happened to me again then I would come straight to you.

Plane injury claims do not mainly result because of a catastrophic air accident. Unfortunately, such disasters do happen and potential claimants should contact specialist personal injury solicitors with a view to claiming the compensation that they deserve. However, because air travel is so ingrained into the lives of so many people, a large proportion of claims come about due to accidents which could happen anywhere.

Common plane injury claims

  • Slips, falls or trips when alighting or departing an aircraft
  • Food poisoning from meals served on board
  • Burns from food or hot drinks
  • Luggage falling from shelves

Causes of plane crash claims

Although plane crashes are rare they do happen and there are common themes relating to the causes. People may be able to make successful personal injury claims if they have been seriously or partially injured through the fault of the airline.

Some of the causes of the injury may be as a result of the following:

  • Poor weather conditions like thunder and lightning
  • Engines failing
  • Fire
  • Turbulence and bad landings
  • Other flying objects hitting the plane like birds
  • Poor communication between the pilot crew and air traffic controllers on the ground.

The Montreal Convention

For plane injury claims relating to international flights, the Montreal Convention can be referred to. This convention is aimed to help international aircraft passengers in the case of an accident of any kind occurring during, before or after a flight. It allows passengers to make claims in case they have suffered an injury through no fault of their own.

It outlines that if someone has been injured or died during a flight then a claim can be made against the country where the airline is based, is en route to or where the passenger lives. There is a capped compensation figure relating to claims made in conjunction with the Montreal Convention and a time limit of 2 years from the date of the accident also applies. Unlike most other personal injury claims it does not place a requirement on an injured person to prove where the fault lies.
