No win no fee in Droitwich
There can be little argument that budget airlines have both revolutionised and democratised air travel. Since the mid-1990s, modern no-frills carriers have made it possible for people who might never have travelled on a plane to take holidays to short-haul destinations for less than it costs to get to the airport. The European budget airline revolution has also greatly increased the number of people who keep second homes abroad. Unfortunately though, to keep costs low, these carriers have to remove all the bells and whistles you’d expect on a traditional airline to make a profit. As a consequence, passengers have to pay for add-ons that used to be free, such as hold luggage and food.
Budget airlines also keep costs down by making sure that their planes are in the air as much as possible, squeezing as much revenue out of each of them as they can. This can mean that cabin crew members have to complete multiple flights every day that they work. You can often see the results of this on their faces if you’re travelling later in the day. Many low-cost airline cabin crew members look less than happy to be doing their jobs when they’re on their fourth flight of the day, and who can blame them.
Unfortunately though, tired and unhappy staff can be liable to make mistakes. In some cases, these mistakes can end up in customers being injured in an accident that was not their fault, which is not something you would want while at 20,000 feet. If you were to be injured by a surly cabin crew member, you might be able to use the services of a good 100% no win no fee solicitor in Droitwich to sue the airline in question for a personal injury pay-out once back on the ground.
Airline cabin crew errors and no win no fee solicitors in Droitwich
Imagine that you’ve just taken your seat on a budget airline flight. As per usual, the cabin crew are keen to get everybody seated in an effort to turn the flight around in as little time as is possible. A cabin crew member becomes frustrated with a passenger who is attempting to store his luggage in an overhead cabin above a seat opposite you. She grabs his bag, opens the cabin above your head and attempts to shove it in. While doing so, she dislodges another bag that falls on your head. The bag in question contained a heavy ornament that knocks you out cold. You have to be escorted from the plane and taken to hospital.
