    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Common compensation claims from airlines


    Common compensation claims from airlines can be broadly split into two categories, namely non-injury related and injury-related claims.

    Non-injury related compensation claims from airlines

    The majority of non-injury related compensation claims from airlines involve delayed or cancelled flights.

    Common compensation claims from airlines related to injuries

    The most common compensation claims from airlines related to injuries are claims made following injuries by slips, trips and falls. Occasionally, claims are made for food poisoning caused by in-flight meals or scalding injuries caused by someone spilling hot beverages.

    Some personal injury claims are filed after plane crashes.

    When to claim

    If you were injured in a plane crash, had a slip, trip or fall or were infected with food poisoning bacteria on a plane, you too, can claim for compensation. Any claims for personal injury compensation must usually be made within two years of the date the accident on a plane occurred. It is therefore important to get your claim started as quickly as possible.

    How to claim

    The best way to confirm your eligibility to claim and get the claim process set into motion is to get in touch with us, Accident Advice Helpline and discuss your trip, slip or fall injury or other in-flight accident with one of our experienced, helpful advisors.

    Alternatively, you can also confirm your claim eligibility by completing the 30-second test here on our official website.

    What happens next

    Once we have established that you are entitled to claim, we will offer you the services of one of our skilled in-house solicitors. You will, however, be under no obligation to take us up on this offer.

    If and when you do, however, we will assign a solicitor with plenty of experience in claims similar to yours to your case. This solicitor will then support you throughout the claim process.

    Handling many of the necessary processes over the telephone, he or she will bring your claim to a satisfactory conclusion as quickly and efficiently as possible on a 100 per cent no-win, no-fee* basis. He or she may even be able to negotiate an out-of-court settlement, but, as claim circumstances vary, we cannot guarantee this.

    How to get in touch

    If you choose to contact us by telephone or mobile, you should call 0800 689 0500 from your landline, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. Both of these freephone lines are strictly confidential and open 24 hours, every day throughout the year.
