Aviation accidents


Accidents causing injury can occur throughout different points in your journey. You may injure yourself boarding or leaving the plane, through turbulence or rough landings, or in serious cases, you or a loved one may be seriously injured or killed in a plane crash.

You may be able to claim for compensation for your injuries if the airline breached their duty of care towards you.

We have set out some of the main factors that you need to consider, such as who the claim would be against (e.g. the airline, the owner of the aircraft, the travel company, or the airport) and when they would be held to be negligent. Have a look at the information on the right-hand side or use the search engine to find further relevant information.

If you would like to obtain legal advice on claims after an aviation incident, or about compensation, we can put you in touch with a local specialist solicitor. Our service is free. So if you have any questions or would like our help in finding local accident compensation solicitors please call us on 08001 221 2299.
