If you have been injured either while travelling on an aircraft or while boarding, you may be able to make a claim for accident abroad compensation.
All aviation claims are governed by the Montreal Convention 1999, as long as both the country of arrival and departure are party to it.
The Montreal Convention - of which the UK is part of - allows people to make a claim for damages where injury or death is caused by an accident either onboard or when embarking or disembarking an aircraft. The injury must have been due to an unusual event or happening which is external to the passenger.
These types of claims are unique and the solicitors here at Lanyon Bowdler have the experience and knowledge to help you get the right result.
It’s worth noting that claims must be brought within two years of the accident, so you should try to get in touch as soon as possible following the incident.
This guide offers some helpful tips on what to do in the event you have been injured or suffered illness whilst abroad.
