Travel claims – personal injury onboard airplane

Travel claims – for accidents or injuries abroad – including onboard an aircraft

If you have suffered an injury whilst on a package holiday or travelling as a passenger on an aircraft – then you may be able to claim compensation.

The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 allow consumers to claim compensation in certain circumstances.

Here we discuss travel claims for negligence on the part of package tour operators and claims involving negligent of cabin crew or airline staff.

Package holiday compensation

If you have been injured in an accident that occurred whilst you were on a package holiday you may be able to claim pursuant to the above regulations.

If you were hurt for example:

within the confines of your chosen Hotel or on an organised excursion

whilst using a hire car arranged by the tour operator

or using any other facilities promoted or controlled by your tour operator;

The package holiday regulations may assist you in obtaining a compensation award. Contact us today for advice on making a travel related claim.

Accidents on board an airplane

The numbers of people travelling by airplane has increased dramatically in recent years. The introduction of cheap budget airlines has opened up a previously dormant market. This vast increase in business volumes inevitably leads to an increase in the occurrence of on-board incidents involving staff and fare paying passengers.

If you have been injured whilst travelling on board the aircraft – whether this be in mid air or on the ground – you have certain rights as a far paying passenger.

The 1999 Montreal Convention establishes a comprehensive and up-to-date set of rules defining and governing the liability of air carriers in relation to passengers, baggage and cargo.

An action can be brought in your home country or permanent place of residence and the airline must be subject to the laws that exist within that jurisdiction.

This means that regardless of whether you are in mid air or in another country (taxiing in the airport for example), once you are on board a plane the carrier is bound by the rules of the Montreal Convention.

We have helped people successfully pursue damages for accidents involving:

  • Spillages of hot liquid causing burns etc.
  • Tripping on board aircraft
  • Accidents caused by the negligence of other passengers and acts of negligence by flight crew

We have successfully won compensation for claimants in cases against Ryan Air, British Airways, Monarch, Airtours, Budget and Easy Jet.
