    Air Accident Investigation


    An air accident encompasses many different circumstances and accounts for a wide range of accident types – perhaps involving an aircraft, helicopter, or even a hang glider or paraglider.  An air accident investigation is undertaken following any accident, whether by an insurance company or even the police if the accident was severe.

    The purpose of an air accident investigation is to determine the cause and circumstances of the accident. The investigation may be looking for evidence of the following:

    • Faulty equipment
    • Mechanical failures
    • Adverse weather condition
    • Lack of training from pilots
    • Freak occurrences such as interference from a bird

    How can an air accident investigation help my claim?

    An air accident investigation is a helpful process for anyone looking to make a claim. If you have been involved in an accident in the air, you may have incurred injuries that have caused you a great deal of pain and inconvenience, perhaps hindering your daily life or preventing you from working.

    By pinpointing the cause of the accident, an air accident investigation can evidence when an accident was someone else’s fault. To make a claim for compensation, the accident will need to have occurred within the past three years. You will also need to show that you required medical attention and that the accident was caused by someone else. The outcome of an investigation can prove the latter.

    I have been involved in an air accident, what should I do next?

    Once you have received medical attention, you should get in touch with a compensation provider as soon as you possibly can. A compensation provider such as Accident Advice Helpline will steer you through the claims process, sensitive to the traumatic experience you have been through and mindful that claiming compensation should be as simple and stress-free as possible.
