  • Accidents or injuries caused by actions of cabin crew, such as being hit by a drinks trolley.
  • Food served with insufficient allergy information.
  • Avoidable slips, trips or falls within the aircraft.
  • Injuries or accidents caused by actions of other passengers.

Making a plane accident claim

Making a plane accident claim

The majority of accidents on planes cases we deal with settle out of court.

Depending on the circumstances of your accident, we will usually bring a claim against the airline that you booked your flight with. This will help to secure the maximum compensation for your injuries and loss as quickly as possible.

Our travel litigation specialists can advise on the appropriate course of action when pursuing an air accident claim.

We’re always committed to getting the optimum outcome for you.

We were put in touch with Hudgell Solicitors through the Advocate to represent us on a pro-bono basis. They assigned Iftikhar Manzoor and he has been fantastic- very down to earth and easy to talk to. Any queries are answered quickly, and there seems to be a real understanding of concerns raised regarding the inquest of a close family member. We are so very grateful of the support they have given us so far, and extremely confident in their ability to achieve the result we hope for.

How long do I have to make a claim?

Under the Montreal Convention, which governs air accidents, passengers are usually entitled to pursue an accident claim in their home country and you normally have up to 2 years to bring a claim from the date of disembarking the aircraft.

We’d always advise you to make a claim at your earliest opportunity following the incident. This will help to strengthen the evidence of your case, and may improve your chances of securing a higher level of compensation.

To start your claim, contact our solicitors today for a free consultation about your circumstances.

How much compensation am I entitled to receive?

We’ll enlist the help of an independent medical examiner, who will assess your injuries and provide us with an idea as to how much compensation may be required to cover your past and ongoing care and medical requirements, and your injuries.

When calculating how much your claim is worth, we’ll look closely at the following:

  • The severity of your physical injuries.
  • The psychological impact of the accident.
  • Your past, present and future loss of earnings for taking time off work.
  • Your ongoing medical requirements.
  • Mobility aids and modifications to your home.
  • Any care and case management needs.
  • The loss of enjoyment you’ve experienced by the airplane accident.
  • Other financial loss.

Our solicitors are experts in securing maximum compensation for accidents onboard airplanes and helicopters, so you can count on them for professional legal advice and support.
