Airplane Accident

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".
