Aircraft passenger burned during a flight
Our client contacted us after he suffered an accident whilst on an aircraft
, he was on a return flight home from a holiday with his friends.
Our client was sleeping on the aircraft when a stewardess spilt boiling hot coffee
on him. Our client suffered from burns
to his arms, shoulder, chest, legs and feet. The burns to our client's chest have left scars which it is hoped should fade in time.
The case fell under the Montreal Convention
which governs air travel and liability over the accident was admitted
by the airline due to the strength of the case.
Our client received £2,500 in compensation
for the accident he suffered on the aircraft. Our client stated that "James was brilliant, always available, replied to emails very quickly. Helpful and honest and would listen well and advise accordingly".
