Many people will simply think of a crash when they think of air accidents. However, there is a whole range of accidents which can happen during a plane journey, and these are much more common than crashes.

The most common air accident claims are for:

  • Trips and slips.
  • Injuries from falling baggage.
  • Burns from food or drinks.
  • Injuries caused by turbulence.

If you have been injured in a plane, caused by the airline’s negligence, then you could make an air accident claim.

Jones Whyte’s specialist personal injury solicitors are here to help you.

Making an air accident claim

Our specialist team will be able to help you throughout your air accident claim.

Like all personal injury claims, it will begin with you giving us a statement. This will help to establish what happened and how you got hurt.

This could be because there was insufficient lighting on the plane steps, causing a fall, or because baggage wasn’t stored properly, causing it to fall.

However you were injured during a flight, our team will be able to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Our team will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the accident and gather supporting evidence. This can include:

  • Medical reports.
  • Witness testimony.

We will then raise the claim with the other side. During this process, we will help you access any medical care you may need to help your recovery. This can include physiotherapy if, for example, you have suffered whiplash-type injuries due to turbulence.

The vast majority of air accident claims are settled out of court.
