    Air Accidents Abroad

    If you want to go abroad on holiday then it is very likely that you will travel by aeroplane. Flying in an aeroplane can be scary enough for some people without things going wrong. If an accident occurs while you are on the plane either to or from your holiday destination then it can turn the from a fun and excited experience to a very traumatic one. Depending on the circumstances it may also ruin your holiday and if you are injured before you leave your home airport then you might not even make it on holiday at all. If you have suffered an injury then you may be able to claim compensation.

    What accidents can I claim compensation for?

    Accidents which might happen while you are on an aeroplane could be falling objects from overhead lockers, spillages of food or drink, slips, trips and falls, turbulence and in the most serious cases plane crashes either in the air or on the runway.

If your holiday was a package holiday (you paid one price for the flights, hotel and any excursions) then you will be able to bring a claim against the holiday provider.

    What should I do if I am in an aviation accident?

    If you are in an aviation accident you should always seek medical assistance no matter how small you think the accident was. If you are able to you should try and collect evidence of your accident this could be photographs of where the accident occurred or speaking to witnesses that witnessed your accident. You can also keep a note or a diary of your symptoms that you suffer and the difficulties you are now facing each day as a result, you can also keep a record of hospital appointments and how long you spent in hospital.
