If you have been injured in an accident on board an aircraft or while you were in the process of embarking/disembarking an aircraft in the last 2 years (there is a two year limit under the Warsaw Convention) contact us to see if you are entitled to compensation.

The airline company will be liable to compensate you for your injuries without having to prove that the accident was caused by its negligence. An unusual occurrence.

There has been much debate as to what constitutes an “accident”. The leading case on this is Air France v Saks where it was held to be “an unusual and unexpected event or happening external to the passenger”. If you are unsure whether the incident constitutes an “accident” then contact us for advice.
