If you’ve suffered injuries in an accident onboard an aircraft, our specialist travel solicitors may be able to help you make a no win no fee compensation claim.
Before accepting your case, we’ll provide a free consultation to ascertain who was responsible and if they have a case to answer. You don’t always need to establish that someone has been negligent in order to claim compensation for an airplane accident. If International Conventions and Regulations apply, often you only need to show that your accident was an “accident” as defined by the Convention. Some examples of qualifying accidents are outlined below:
If you are a crew member, rather than a paying passenger on the aircraft, you may also be entitled to claim as an accident at work abroad claim.
Our specialist holiday claims solicitors can advise on whether you have a case following an aircraft accident. To benefit from a free, no obligation discussion about your case, contact us today.

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

When calculating how much your claim is worth, we’ll look closely at the following:
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.
An initial consultation about the circumstances of your claim will help our travel litigation solicitors determine whether or not you have a case. If your claim is accepted, we’ll begin the four-step claims process, which includes:
