If you have been injured in the course of a flight, you may be able to make an air accident compensation claim.
Air accident compensation claims
If you’ve been injured working in the air, you might find it helpful to have a read of our page on work injury claims. Alternatively, you may have been hurt on holiday, in which case we recommend that you click through to our page on holiday accident claims after you’ve read this one.
Successful air compensation claims are made when the injured party is not at fault for the accident, and another person or organisation is responsible. The airline or the holiday company will be responsible for your safety if you’re injured on a plane.
Claiming air accident compensation
It is always a good idea to collect as much information about the accident as possible, and of course anything that shows it wasn’t your fault is particularly useful.
It is essential that you obtain immediate medical attention, whether or not you think you need it. You must be especially careful if you’ve had a bang on the head, which can seem like nothing at the time, but is actually very serious. To help your claim and make sure you get back any money you’ve already spent, keep a record of the attention you receive, in addition to any expenses incurred.
