Aircraft Injury Compensation Claims

Travelling domestically or internationally by air is something many people undertake each year, whether it’s for business or pleasure. With high volumes of people travelling, incidents and accidents can occur and it is not uncommon to be injured while travelling by aircraft.

When we think or aircraft accidents and incidents, we often only think of plane crashes but these are not the only injuries that can occur through travel. You can become injured while travelling through no fault of your own. If you have sustained injuries while on your travels due to the negligence of the airline or airport operators or staff, you could be entitled to compensation for any personal injury suffered.

These injuries are not restricted to when you are on the aircraft, as they can also occur when boarding or disembarking from the plane, while in the airport terminal or concourse and even when navigating through tunnels and airbridges. Injuries can even occur while travelling between terminals or in transit to or from the tarmac. Some of the most common causes of aircraft incidents include:

  • Items falling from overhead lockers, mostly resulting in head injuries
  • Injury from defective or damaged seats
  • Burns caused by spilt hot drinks
  • Injuries caused by food or drinks trolleys
  • Trip and fall injuries on stairs, air bridges and tunnels
  • Injuries caused by defective fittings
  • Turbulence-related injuries
