    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Once your child reaches a certain age, he or she will be able to travel on a plane accompanied by a member of cabin crew for the entire journey. Children can typically fly alone from the age of around 12, but some airlines will allow kids as young as five or six to fly accompanied by a member of their staff. If you’re a parent, it will be worth bearing in mind that you’ll usually have to pay for this service and that not all airlines provide it, but if you have relatives abroad and fancy sending your offspring off for a break while you get on with some work, this can be a great way doing so easily.

    If your child were to be injured in an accident that was not his or her fault while flying as an unaccompanied minor, you might be able to take personal injury action just as you would under any other circumstances. If you were minded to do this, you would be well advised to first seek the advice of a top 100% no win no fee* Harlow law firm.

    Unaccompanied minors on aircraft and a good Harlow law firm

    When you book for your child to fly as an unaccompanied minor, a member of cabin crew will typically pick your son or daughter up at the check-in desk roughly an hour before the flight is due to leave. This will vary from airline to airline, and will likely be longer for long-haul flights. You will have previously arranged for somebody to pick your child up at arrivals at the other end, so your son or daughter will be the responsibility of the airline’s staff at all times in between.

    If your child were to be injured in an accident that was not their fault during this time, you might well be able to make a claim for some form of recompense.
