Aviation & Boating Accidents

Have you been in an aviation or boating accident as a result of another party’s negligence? You may be able to claim for compensation, irrespective of the type of craft/aircraft involved

Aviation & Boating Accidents

To determine whether an aviation or boating accident was the result of negligence, you should ask two questions:

  • Did the harm, injury or fatality arise from a negligent or wrongful act or omission on the part of the defendant, its employees or agents?
  • Was the harm, injury or fatality that occurred reasonably foreseeable?

If your answer is ‘yes’ to both these questions, it’s possible to claim damages.

Tips for dealing with the situation

Quantification of Damages


There are many things to consider when assessing the value of a claim.  Some of these factors include the nature of your injury, the cause of the injury, and the impact that the injury has on your ability to work and on the activities of daily living such as household chores and recreational activities.

Once your lawyer has received sufficient medical information from your health care providers and any medical specialist, he or she will be in a better position to provide you with a more accurate assessment of your claim.

Legal Steps


The process will be extremely technical and the Defendants, owning the vehicles, will be privy to extensive information relating to various aspects of the vehicle. You will need to contact a speciality law firm which can assist you in proceeding with you claim.

In the case of claiming on behalf of a loved one or relative, the same principles apply and the compensation will be rewarded to the relative to settle medical expenses and loss of income.
