Injuries During International Airplane Flights

Millions of tourists visit Florida every year, many from other countries.  If you are injured during an international flight or while getting on or off the airplane, you may be able to make a claim against the airline under international aviation treaties. 

The good news is that under the treaties, you do not have to prove that the airline did something wrong.  You just have to prove that you were injured on the flight.  That means, for example, that if you trip and fall in the aisle of the plane, you can collect some compensation for your injuries.  Only physical injuries are covered, not mental or emotional distress.  If you contributed to your injuries (say, by not following the flight crew's instructions), that may reduce the amount of money that you can claim. 

Most countries have signed these international aviation treaties, so this law applies to virtually all international flights.  However, you only have two years in which to make a claim, so don't delay.  Contact an experienced personal injury attorney.  Our office offers a free consultation and we would be happy to discuss your case with you.

Woooow, you must super clumsy to get the injuries during the flight. The hardest thing I could do is to stiff my neck. Airplanes are super safe actually. If you are following the flight crew's instructions, of course. And if not - I personal think it's your own fault. Why someone should pay you, if you did what you didn't supposed to do? I think the only way to get injured at airplane - it's been beaten by the bad behaviored child on the back sit. Why parent don't educate them? Don't know how? Ask this guys https://hitthegrade.com/ to make an essay about child education for you!
