London Stansted Airport is one of the UK’s largest airports and is the fourth busiest airport in the United Kingdom. It is located in Essex and serves London, Essex and the wider South East. The airlines based at Stansted Airport offer flights to destinations across Europe, North Africa and West Asia. Stansted Airport is a well-run hub, however, if proper standards of health and safety are not adhered to, this can result in customers and members of staff becoming injured at the airport, or being made ill. As a large business, Stansted Airport has a duty of care towards their customers, staff and other people who use the airport, such as independent contractors working at the airport. This means they are legally obliged to take every reasonable step to protect the health and safety of those who use the airport. If Stansted Airport neglects their duty of care and this causes an avoidable accident, resulting in someone becoming injured or ill then the airport could be held liable for the injuries caused and have to pay the victim compensation.

Under what circumstances can someone make a compensation claim for an accident at Stansted Airport? An accident in London Stansted Airport that results in someone becoming injured or ill, can be claimed for if it was an avoidable accident that was caused by negligence on the part of the airport. For example, if a passenger slips on a wet floor and injures themselves because it has not been properly mopped up and signposted, then the airport or business managing that space could be held liable for the person’s injuries. This is because it would be judged that the airport’s negligence was a direct cause of the injuries. As a result, the passenger could make a personal injury claim against the airport for compensation.
Alternatively, if a passenger falls in the airport because they were running because they were late for their flight, they wouldn’t be entitled to compensation, as they would be judged to be responsible for their accident. If a passenger falls in the airport because of an arbitrary accident that was not judged to be the fault of any party then they also would not be entitled to claim compensation. If you believe that you are entitled to claim compensation then call Legal Expert today. If you have legitimate grounds to claim, then we will provide you with an excellent personal injury solicitor right to handle your case right away.
