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 expert aviation lawyer.

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.
