Get expert advice on bringing successful plane accident claims
At YourHolidayClaims, we have a specialist team of solicitors on hand to offer the advice and support you need to receive the maximum compensation after suffering an accident on board a plane.
This means that if you suffered an injury when embarking or disembarking the aircraft, or suffered injuries caused by falling luggage, you could be legally entitled to make a claim.
However, it is important that you act as quickly as possible as the time limits are stricter than most holiday accident claims. Under the Montreal Convention, you will only have 2 years from the date of the accident in which to make a claim.
By contacting the legal experts at YourHolidayClaims, you can receive a free initial consultation to quickly discover whether you could be entitled to make a claim with no obligation to continue.
To talk to one of our friendly legal experts about how we can help you receive the compensation you deserve, call us now on 0330 100 2851
What types of accidents on an airplane can you claim for?
Some of the most common accidents suffered on board a plane include:
- Slips, trips and falls when embarking and disembarking the plane
- Injuries caused by falling luggage from overhead lockers
- Burns and scalding accidents caused by spilt hot drinks
If you have suffered injuries caused by any of the plane accidents listed above, you may be entitled to bring a claim for compensation.
How do you make a plane accident claim?
If you have suffered injuries caused by an accident on an airplane which was not your fault, you can bring your claim against your tour operator or airline right here in the UK.
The Montreal Convention imposes strict liability on the airline meaning that you may not have to prove that someone was at fault in order to bring a claim. The fact that the accident happened can in some cases be sufficient to make a successful claim.
Here at YourHolidayClaims, our specialist plane accident claim solicitors can quickly advise you on your rights to make a claim by discussing the circumstances of the accident with you. An experienced solicitor will be available to answer any questions you have on the claims process.
How much could your plane accident compensation claim be worth?
As with any personal injury claim, all cases are different and the amount of compensation you receive will depend on your individual circumstances. The specialist solicitors at YourHolidayClaims will help you receive compensation for the injuries you have suffered, any loss of enjoyment of your holiday and any costs you have incurred as a result of the accident.
For example, if you had to pay any travel costs or medical costs due to the accident you suffered, this can be included in the overall compensation that you receive.
By choosing the legal experts at YourHolidayClaims, you can bring your claim on a no win no fee basis. This means that even if your claim is unsuccessful, it won’t cost you a penny*. You can read more about our no win no fee holiday claims policy here.
