I’ve been injured on an aeroplane, can I make a claim for personal injury?
Much the same as in on any form of public transport, if you are injured on an aeroplane, as a result of someone else’s negligence, you can pursue a claim for personal injury. Accidents on an aeroplane, can include, but are not limited to:
Scalds and burns from food service;
Faulty Equipment, such as chairs, seatbelts or tables;
Injury due to items falling from overhead lockers, including baggage;
Slips, trips and falls when getting on or off the aeroplane;
Injury caused by bumpy landings;
Assaults, and injury caused by other passengers.
What's required to make a personal injury claim on an aeroplane?
If you are injured in the air, then our personal injury team have provided a guide, detailing what would help you tu pursue an aeroplane injury claim:
• Firstly, if you are injured, make sure that your injury is reported to a member of the
'plane's crew. Read a copy of the accident report and if you agree to the content,
sign and keep a copy.
• Take witness details, no matter where the witnesses may be from- in a world of
Facebook, Whatsapp and email, no matter where the witnesses live, we can
communicate with them.
• If you can, then take photographs of the cause of the incident. Many of the
personal injury claims our solicitors have dealt with include passengers being
scalded by food and drink, or being hit by luggage. Make sure pictures are taken,
of the cause of the accident, and the burns, scalds or bruises on your body.
• When you arrive at your destination, go and see a doctor or go to the hospital. If
you make a trip to the hospital or seek medical advice from a private doctor, keep
all medical records, prescriptions and recommendations that you get from the
• Ask for a copy of your medical notes- this may come at a small cost, but saves a
lot of time for your personal injury solicitor requesting them from a foreign country
at a later date.
How many years do I have to make a personal injury claim?
As with the Athens convention, for those injured at sea, The Montreal Convention 1999 states that you have 2 years to make a claim for personal injury from the date you were injured on the ‘plane. Your injury must have been sustained whilst getting on the plane, or when disembarking. Or, of course during the flight, including being injured during take off, or landing.

As every one of MG Legal’s clients are different, the injuries the sustain vary, as do the effects on their lives. From injuries to the head, neck and upper body, to broken ankles and legs.

Compensation is broken down into two parts- General Damages, and Special Damages, and the aim of the personal injury team at MG Legal, is to ensure you receive the amount of personal injury compensation, you rightly deseve for being injured. You didn't ask to be injured, so why shouldn't you be compensated?
