Common Questions

What are my time limits?

It is important to protect your time limit if you wish to make a claim. The time limit for making a claim in relation to an aviation accident is shorter than normal and is only 2 years from the date of the accident. 

How do I make a claim?

We advise that there is no formal notification document required to be delivered prior to making a claim. Notice of a Claim is usually simply done by writing a letter to the airline or its insurer.

What can I claim?

If you are injured you can claim for pain and suffering, loss of earnings and any out of pocket expenses such as medical expenses for rehabilitation you have paid due to the accident. If a loved one was killed dependants can make a claim for loss of financial and non-financial support.

There are unfortunately international conventions which place a cap on the amount of damages which can be claimed. 

How long does a claim take?

When there has been an aircraft accident there is usually a extensive investigation and this can simplify the claim process. Equally there are international conventions which impose a legal concept called strict liability.

We are usually in a position to commence settlement negotiations of your claim within 2 years from the date of the accident. 

How much does it cost?

We work on a no win no fee basis. You will never receive a bill from us unless your claim is successful*.
