When people hear the term airline accident, they usually think of a plane crash. In this guide, we are talking about smaller scale accidents that could happen to passengers on planes if the airline neglects health and safety rules, such as luggage falling on a customer’s head from an overhead locker, or a passenger becoming ill with food poisoning or slip trip and fall due to hazards. These accidents could happen when alighting or disembarking the aircraft, before or during take off or landing and during the flight. If the accident or injury was caused by negligence on the part of an airline, then you could be eligible to claim compensation. Call Legal Expert today, to see if you are entitled to claim.
If you were injured or made ill during a flight, in an accident that was the fault of the airline, your rights are protected by the Montreal Convention of 1999, which many countries including the United Kingdom have signed up to. If the airline was the cause of your airline accident, which resulted in you becoming injured or ill then you could qualify for compensation. Call Legal Expert today for your free Wizz Air flight accident consultation and if you are entitled to claim, we will connect you with a personal injury solicitor to manage your air accident claim.
If your misjudged actions caused your injuries, you will unfortunately not be able to claim compensation. For example if you were hurt from your luggage falling on your head because you didn’t stow it away properly. But if you injuries were caused by negligence on the part of the airline, or a member of staff then you may be entitled to compensation. Call Legal Expert today, to see if you are entitled to claim.
The Montreal Convention allows passengers to make compensation claims for airline injuries or illnesses that were caused by negligence on the part of the airline. The claim can be made in the passenger’s home country, no matter where they were in the world at the time of their accident. This means that if you were injured on a Wizz Air flight abroad through no fault of your own, or travelling over international waters, you can use a personal injury lawyer based in Great Britain, to handle your claim.
Here are some common causes of injuries that could happen on airplanes could include: faulty seating, luggage not being properly secured when taking off and landing, damage to the plane which is a health and safety hazard that has not had proper control measures applied to it, slip, trip and fall hazards on the aircraft not having been repaired, passengers being scalded and burned because of improper cooking of food and drink and seating injuries and inflight turbulence. Disabled passenger accidents could also occur if the passenger’s requirements are not met, for example, not letting them board the aircraft before other passengers.
We will look at these accidents in more detail below:
Part of the experience of flying by plane is enjoying inflight beverages and meals. This is usually a pleasant experience, but unfortunately if accidents occur, customers can suffer a coffee burn or tea burn. If hot drinks are spilled on passengers it could cause severe burns and scalds. If you have suffered a tea burn, or coffee burn accident on a Wizz Air flight due to negligence on the part of the staff, you could be entitled to seek damages or compensation for your injuries. Call Legal Expert today, to see if you are entitled to claim.
If you are a disabled passenger, you are entitled to help from your airline at various points at the airport, and on the plane. For example if you need it, you are entitled to help when you arrive at the airport, reach check in and moving through the airport. You are also allowed to bring your wheelchair, an assistance dog onto the plane. Airlines also make allowances for disabled passengers such as allowing them to board before other passengers. If you have a disability and it could affect your flight, you must inform your airline 48 hours in advance. If you have informed your airline of your disability and they fail to provide the assistance you need, or act negligently towards you in other ways which caused a disabled passenger accident and this resulted in you becoming injured or ill, you could then be entitled to claim personal injury compensation. Call Legal Expert today for your free consultation. If you are unable to use the telephone because of a hearing disability, or other condition, you can use our online claims form and an advisor will get in contact with you as soon as possible.
If a service car or trolley is left unattended it can roll away and hit a passenger if the breaks are not applied. It can cause nasty injuries, including hip injuries, knee injuries or soft tissue injuries. Flight attendants have a duty of care towards passengers to take precautions to keep them safe. If you have been injured because of a service cart or trolley accident on a Wizz Air flight, you may be entitled to make an air accident claim for compensation.
Have you experienced an injury caused by a slip and fall on an aircraft? Maybe you fell because of broken or faulty flooring on the plane, or a spilled on a food or drink item that the cabin crew had neglected to mop up. Or you could have fallen disembarking the plane after you landed if the staircase or ramp was faulty, or had a slip hazard on it. If you have been injured because of a slip, trip or fall accident that happened on a Wizz Air flight, and you feel it was due to the fault of the airline you could be entitled to make an airline compensation claim.
If you have been injured because of luggage falling on your head, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries if it was due to the negligence of the staff. Cabin crew are responsible for making sure that the overhead storage bins for luggage are properly filled and shut before the flight takes off or lands.
Pilots and airlines cannot stop unexpected turbulence from taking place. However, airlines should have protocols in place to make sure that when turbulence happens it doesn’t lead to any accidents. Turbulence can shake the plane and make passengers and staff lose their footing, leading to injuries, so it’s important that everyone returns to their seat during turbulence to avoid this, and staff don’t engage in potentially dangerous practises such as pushing trolleys. If you have been injured because of unexpected turbulence on a Wizz Air flight, due to the captain not alerting you to the fact and no seat belt signs being switched on call us today to see if you have grounds to pursue a claim.
Like restaurants and cafes on the ground, airlines also have a responsibility to follow correct health and safety practises when preparing and storing inflight meals and snacks. Neglecting to do so can cause passengers to become ill with food poisoning, which can ruin a holiday. If you have become ill with food poisoning on a Wizz Air flight, and it can be medically proven call Legal Expert to see if you can claim compensation.
An airplane seat being damaged or faulty, could be a cause of a Wizz Air flight accident that could injure the passenger. Faults can include a faulty mechanism or protruding sharp parts on the seat. If you are injured because of a faulty seat on a plane, you could be owed airline injury compensation. Call us today, and if you are entitled to make an airline accident claim, we will connect you to a suitable personal injury solicitor to handle your claim.
If you are injured in an airline accident that is not your fault, you could qualify to make a claim. If your airline compensation claim is successful, you will be awarded your compensation claim in two parts. The first part will be general damages, which is normally the largest part of your claim. General damages will compensate you for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity you experience as a result of your injuries. You will also be awarded special damages, which will reimburse you for any expenses you experienced relating to your injuries, such as medical or travel costs.
