Aviation & Boating

Aviation & Boating

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.

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.
