Suffering an injury while working as a flight accident can have a serious impact on your life, so you may well be able to make a flight attendant accident claim. Flight attendant duties often include working in a tight environment while the aeroplane is buffeted by air turbulence. This can cause you to trip and fall or you can be burned or scalded while serving hot food and drinks.
Drunk or belligerent passengers have been known to physically strike aircraft staff and this can cause severe physical injuries. Personal looks are particularly important to flight attendants, so an injury that causes scarring can have very severe consequences and can be career threatening.
No matter how your injury was suffered, so long as you were not to blame and it is within three years of the accident, you should seriously consider making a flight attendant accident claim.

What we need to know
In order to decide whether you have grounds for a claim and then for our expert lawyers to pursue it, we will need to know as much as possible about the accident which caused your injury. This means that we will need your own account of the events leading to your accident as well any witness accounts. If you suffered the injury because of a criminal act, such as an assault, then we will also need to know the name and force number of the investigating officer.
You cannot launch a flight attendant accident claim without a medical or doctor’s report. It is this report that will explain the extent of your injuries and could well play a major part in determining the amount of compensation you receive. Therefore, if you have not already seen your doctor before contacting Accident Advice Helpline, we advise you to do so immediately.
What can I claim for?
A successful claim can see you being awarded compensation for pain and suffering as well as financial losses. These losses could include time off work recovering and additional expenses such as prescriptions, travel to and from treatment sessions and medical care.
You will not have to pay anything upfront when Accident Advice Helpline lawyers assist you with a claim. This is because they work on a no win, no fee* basis.
