    Five turbulence ‘coping measures’ on an aeroplane


    When you’re packing and rushing around getting everything together, finding passports and throwing your sun lotion into your case, the last thing you want to think about is getting injured abroad, but sadly accidents do happen and it’s important to be prepared, do your research and always ensure you have valid insurance before you go away. If you’ve had an accident abroad, you’ve been injured on a plane or you’ve encountered problems at your hotel, you may be thinking about claiming travel accident compensation.

    Flying tips: Five ways to cope with turbulence

    Many people are scared of flying and turbulence is one of the main causes. Turbulence causes the plane to feel bumpy and to feel like its falling suddenly and it can be very frightening. Turbulence can occur very quickly and unexpectedly; it is usually the result of a plane coming into contact with a powerful current of wind. Turbulence is more likely to occur when the weather conditions are poor. Ways to cope with turbulence include:

    • Ensure that your seatbelt is firmly fastened
    • Remain seated at all times when the seatbelt sign is illuminated
    • Ensure that all your luggage is stored safely to avoid bags being thrown around and prevent injuries
    • Breathe deeply and try to stay calm
    • Follow instructions from the pilot and cabin crew

    Staying safe on holiday

    When you reach your destination, you should adopt the same level of caution as you would at home even though it’s easy to adopt a more relaxed approach. Take care around swimming pools, make sure food is fully cooked, drink bottled water and look out for warning signs, which flag up slip, trip or fall hazards. Watch out for stairs and slippery floors in hotels and restaurants and report any problems, such as damaged furniture, scalding water from the shower or faulty electrical equipment to the owner.

    Claiming travel accident compensation

    Holidays should be fun and relaxing, but sadly, travel accidents can happen. If you’ve been injured overseas, you’ve been involved in a flying accident or you’ve had a car crash abroad and you were not to blame, you should be able to claim compensation. Call Accident Advice Helpline, a law firm with expertise in handling personal injury claims and public liability compensation, to discuss your holiday accident claim with an experienced lawyer.
