Aviation Law

If you or a loved one has been injured in an aircraft-related accident, you may have a legal claim for compensation. At Shine Lawyers, we're aviation law experts and deliver practical legal solutions quickly and effectively.


The laws surrounding aviation injuries are detailed and complex, and often complicated jurisdictional issues arise. International airline passengers are subject to rules under international conventions, while different rules apply to domestic passengers. That's why you need advice from an aviation law expert.

We know standing up against big companies can all seem a bit too hard, but that’s where we shine. While you focus on getting better we’ll focus on the legal side of things for you. You’ll always have someone available to talk to and we’ll never give you the run around. Our people will get the job done, without any drama.

Expert aviation lawyers

At Shine Lawyers, our aviation lawyers are experts in all aspects of airline accident law. We provide tailored aviation law services to travellers anywhere in the world for harm suffered at the airport or during a flight. Whether you were travelling domestically or internationally, we're here to help.

Types of aviation accident claims

The range of claims that fall under aviation law is quite diverse. Some examples of aviation accident matters that you may have a claim for include:

  • Injuries resulting from domestic or foreign air crashes and disasters;
  • Injuries caused by foreign charter aircraft crashes;
  • Injuries sustained while getting on or off domestic or international flights in Australia or overseas (including falls down air stairs, or on aerobridges, or in airport terminals);
  • Injuries occurring during domestic charter or aerial work;
  • If the airline’s wheelchair assistance was deficient which resulted in an injury;
  • Scalding by hot tea/coffee/water poured by flight attendants on-board;
  • Allergic reactions to airline food;
  • If you’ve suffered sexual assault/molestation during a flight; or
  • Serious injuries sustained from bags falling out of overhead compartments.

Under Australian law, you have two years to bring a claim for most flight-related accidents. So if you've been injured, it's important to seek expert legal advice as soon as possible. Get in touch with our aviation experts today, and we'll make sure your rights and entitlements are protected.
