Newcastle-upon-Tyne, in the north east of England is well-served as far as transport goes, with its own airport in close proximity to the town. It also has excellent road and rail links with other parts of the country as well as a metro service. Travelling by any mode of transport can be hazardous, although planes are the safest means of transport. Having said that, there are plane accidents and you may have a personal accident, perhaps a slip, trip or fall while inside a plane. You may also be hit by a falling object if items have not been properly stowed away in overhead racks. If you are injured in any type of accident that you can prove was not your fault, you may be seeking the services of the best accident injury solicitors in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, or elsewhere, in order to file a personal injury compensation claim.
Best accident injury solicitors in Newcastle-upon-Tyne
The best accident injury solicitors in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, or ones based anywhere else in the country can advise you about whether or not you have a case to make a personal injury compensation claim, either for injuries or for an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. You would need to ascertain how long you have to file your particular claim, as although you normally have three years in which to make a claim, there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, if you had an accident in the air, or at an airport (almost anywhere in the world, provided that the country is a signatory or the Montreal Convention), or even of your accident occurred at sea, you would only have two years in which to make a claim for your injuries.

Accidents on planes
If you are travelling on a plane, you could injure yourself in an accident in the aisle, or even perhaps, one of the well-trained cabin crew could scald you with burning liquid. If this happens and it was not caused by turbulence, but by negligence, then you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim against the operators.
If you trip over an obstacle in the aisle, you may also be able to prove negligence of the cabin crew was to blame for your accident as all baggage should be stowed either under seats or in the overhead racks.
These are just some some examples of accidents which can occur on a plane.
