Flying with one of Europe’s low-cost budget airlines sure isn’t glamorous, but most of them do what they say they will fairly effectively; get you from A to B for a low price, although sometimes “B” might be some distance away from the actual city you want to end up in. However, they can only make their business model work by keeping their aircraft in the sky for as long a time as is possible.
This means the cabin crew who work for these companies must turn flights around with in a very short time after they’ve landed, sometimes in less than 30 minutes. This is quite a big ask, and can sometimes result in issues that would be sorted out if time were not a consideration being left. In rare cases, this can result in a passenger being injured in an accident that was not their fault.
If this were to happen to you, there will be a possibility that you might be able to retain the services of a decent solicitor with a view to seeking a pay-out via a no win no fee* in Corfton claim.
Airplane accidents and no win no fee* Corfton claims
Imagine that you’ve been queuing up at your flight’s gate for a little while. The cabin crew are quick out of the plane to get all passengers boarded as quickly as possible, so quick in fact that you wonder how they had time to tidy the cabin after seeing off the alighting passengers. You’ve paid to board the plane first as you don’t care standing around and like to choose your own seat.
You’re first in the priority queue, so get to be the first person on the plane. You select a seat next to one of the doors in the middle of the aircraft as you like to have a little bit of legroom. You open the overhead compartment above your seat to store your hand luggage, but as you lift your bag, you slip on a piece of banana skin that had been left on the floor.
You fall back and hit your head on the floor, knocking yourself out in the process. You are forced to disembark and seek medical attention. The flight ends up leaving without you. As the airline would have had a responsibility to make sure the floor of the plane was free from slip hazards, you might have a personal injury case in these circumstances.
