Flight Claims

Home » » Flight Claims

Flying is a common way of getting around, whether it be for business or pleasure. As with any mode of transport, accidents can happen and it is important if an injury is suffered you get the right advice.

The law which governs accidents on flights is the Montreal Convention which establishes a regime of liability for injuries suffered in the air.

As with accidents at sea, the period for bringing a claim is two years, as opposed to three years for other personal injury claims.

There can also be other legal technicalities of where the accident occurred, whether a person was embarking or disembarking or whether the accident was in an airport.

If you are considering making a claim you get specialist advice from experts in this field. Our specialist Personal Injury Lawyers know how to get you the compensation you deserve if you’ve been during a flight and will make sure you receive the maximum compensation for your claim.

We handle these claims on a no-win, no-fee basis which means that if your claim is not successful, you will have nothing to pay. We want to reassure you that there are no financial risks in making your claim.
