Causes of Plane Crashes or Rough Landings

Injuries caused by Plane Crashes

There are many different factors which can cause a plane to encounter difficulties taking off, flying or landing.  Some of the most common causes of plane crashes or difficult landings and take offs include:

  • Weather conditions such as lightning, ice and snow and volcanic ash
  • Birds striking the plane
  • Engine failure or stalling
  • Fire
  • Misinformation (from ground crews, air traffic control or maps)

Other Accidents on Flights

Accidents on Planes

As well as crashes and bumpy landings, there are many other ways which people suffer injuries on an aeroplane.  Some of the most common injury claims we have dealt with at Thompsons have included:

  • Hot food or drinks being spilled onto passengers by cabin crew
  • Food poisoning from airline meals
  • Passengers being hit by falling objects from above
  • Passengers injured by trolleys being moved up and down the aisles
  • Lacerations caused by sharp edges of seating etc
  • Slips and trips on plane stairs, jet way or loading bridge

If you have suffered an injury on an aeroplane, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation.

Time Limits to make an Aeroplane Accident Claim

Plane Accident Time Limits – 2 years

In the UK the legal time limit for making a personal injury claim is normally 3 years from the date of the accident (with a few exceptions).  Accidents on aeroplanes; however, are covered by separate regulations and you must make a claim for compensation within two years of the accident date in the majority of cases.

Due to the shorter time limits involved, if you have been injured whilst travelling on, boarding or departing an aircraft you should seek immediate legal advice about whether you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
