The airline was founded in 1979, following a merger of Intra Airways and Express Air Services. Flybe provides flights to over 8 million travellers a year across Europe. It also codeshares with larger airlines, to provide connections to long haul flights. Until February 2019 when Flybe was sold to Connect Airways, it was the largest independent regional airline in Europe. Overall Flybe is considered a safe airline to travel with. The website airlineratings.com gives the airline top marks in terms of safety ratings, and fortunately, the airline is fatality free.

What Is A Flybe Injury Or Accident?

As an operating airline, Flybe has a duty of care towards its passengers and staff. This means that the business is responsible for taking all possible health and safety precautions, to protect people who take their flights. If they neglect to do so, and this leads to an accident, injuring a customer, member of staff or anyone else who is associated with the business, then Flybe could be held legally liable for their injuries and could have to pay them compensation as a result.

Many people think that most airline injuries claims are for air crash accidents, which involve mass fatalities. However, these sorts of accidents, resulting air crash injuries are thankfully very rare. However there could be incidents whereby passengers could sustain injuries on the aircraft, and boarding or disembarking the flight. Airline accidents and injuries could include slip, trip, and fall accidents, being burned by hot tea or hot coffee or accidents involving disabled passengers, amongst others.

You could be entitled to make a Flybe Accident Claim if you have been injured or made ill because of a Flybe flight problem, or an accident that was not your fault. Call us today, to enquire about making your air accident compensation claim.

Is There A Time Limit For Inflight Accident Claims?

If you wish to make an air accident claim there is a personal injury claims limit. This means that there you must begin your claim within a certain amount of time from the day of your accident, or from the day you realised that you had been harmed, in order to qualify.

  • If you were injured on a privately booked flight, a personal injury claims time limit of two years may apply.
  • If you were injured on a flight that was part of a package deal or which was booked through a tour operator, a personal injury claims time limit of three years applies.

 

When Are You Eligible To Make An Air Travel Accident Claim?

To make a Flybe personal injury claim, you have to be injured or made ill because of negligence on the part of Flybe. For example, if you suffered DVT because you sat in your seat for too long and did not take proper precautions, you will not be able to claim compensation for your injuries, as the airline was not responsible for this behaviour. The accident will have had to have been directly or partially caused by the airline, for you to be able to legitimately claim in-flight injuries on airplanes compensation.

UK Air Passenger Rights

The 1992 Package Tour Regulations also protect UK air passenger rights. They entitle passengers to claim compensation for an accident on a flight, that was booked as part of a package holiday from a UK tour operator.

The Montreal Convention And International Air Passenger Rights

Many counties, including the United Kingdom, have signed up to the Montreal Convention. The Montreal Convention of 1999 protects air passenger rights. The convention states that if a customer is injured on a flight because of negligence on the part of an airline, even if they were injured flying overseas, or flying over international waters, they may have the right to claim compensation in their home country. This means that you will be protected if you experienced a Flybe injury or illness that was not your fault, you will be able to use a personal injury solicitor in the United Kingdom to handle your claim.

Reasons For Making An Air Travel Accident Claim

Many clients wonder if, at AccidentClaims.co.uk, we will only handle accident claims for specific airline injuries or illnesses. This is not the case. As long as you suffered an injury or illness that was serious enough for you to miss three or more days off work, and your injury was a direct result of airline negligence we will consider helping you claim airline injury compensation. We will now look at some of the injuries and illnesses that could possible happen.

Hot Food And Liquid Scalds And Burns

Your in-flight meal and beverage should be an enjoyable part of your flight. However, if proper precautions and are not taken when preparing or serving an inflight meal, or drinks, and they are heated far too hot for consumption this could cause customers to suffer from hot tea burns, coffee burns or food burns. Burns can be caused by members of the cabin crew spilling hot tea or coffee onto the lap of a customer. Other burns can be caused by food or drinks being served at too hot a temperature, causing the customer’s mouth to become burned. If you have suffered a coffee burn, tea burn or food burn injury on a Flybe flight because of negligence on the part of the airline, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation.

Disabled Air Passenger Rights And Accidents

If you suffer from a disability, moving through an airport as well as boarding and disembarking a plane can be challenging. In many instances, you may be more vulnerable, or require assistance with tasks. Because of this, disabled passengers are entitled to assistance from their airline, at various points at the airport and on the airplane. To receive this assistance the disabled passenger or carer should inform their airline that they require help 48 hours in advance of their flight. If you informed your airline that you are disabled and required assistance and they neglected to give it to you, resulting in you becoming injured, you could be entitled to claim compensation for this negligence. Similarly, if you were injured because airline staff failed to make proper allowances for your disability, for example as a result of you not being given priority boarding on the plane, you could be entitled to claim compensation.

If you were injured because Flybe failed to take account of your disability, call AccidentClaims.co.uk to see if you are entitled to Flybe compensation. If you prefer not to speak on the telephone you can email us and an advisor will get in contact with you as soon as possible.

In Flight Service Cart Accidents

Inflight service carts, also known as service trolleys may not seem like they can pose a risk to passengers. However, if they are left without the breaks on, or unattended, this could cause a trolley accident where the service trolley can roll up or down the aisles, or where it tips over injuring a passenger. If you have been injured because of a service trolley accident on a Flybe flight, talk to us today.

Injuries That Could Be Caused By Tripping Or Falling Over

Slips, trips or falls are a common accident. They could happen if there is an obstruction on the floor of the airplane, such as luggage or some spilled liquid, or if the floor is broken. Passengers could also suffer from a slip, trip or fall injuries when they are alighting or disembarking the aircraft, if the ramp has not been properly attached to the plane, or is faulty. If you have been injured because of a slip, trip or fall injury on a Flybe flight, which was caused by negligence on the part of the airline, you could be entitled to make a Flybe claim for airline injury compensation. Call us today for your free legal consultation to find out more.

Overhead Storage Bin Accidents

Before every flight, cabin crew are supposed to check the overhead lockers to ensure that hand luggage has been stored away properly. If the Flybe staff fail to do this correctly and a piece of luggage falls on a passengers head, injuring them, the passenger may be owed airline injury compensation. If you have been injured by luggage falling on your head, please call us to discuss if you have the right to make a claim. Call AccidentClaims.co.uk today, to enquire about making your claim.

I Was Injured During Unexpected Turbulence, Can I Claim Compensation?

Pilots and the cabin crew can’t stop turbulence from happening. However, the flight crew will have special procedures in place to minimise the risk of injury during turbulence. This will include requesting customers to return to their seats and fasten their seat belts, to avoid falling over and hurting themselves or others. If you were injured during turbulence on a Flybe flight because the cabin crew neglected to follow proper procedures, you could make a Flybe accident claim for compensation. Call Accident Claims UK today, to see if you are entitled to compensation.

Food Allergy Compensation Claims

You could contract food poisoning or suffer an allergic reaction on an airplane, if your inflight meal has not been properly prepared, stored or cooked properly or you were not informed of the allergens the food contained. If you have experienced food poisoning and it has been medically proven or an allergic reaction because of negligence on the part of an airline, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim. Call AccidentClaims.co.uk today and if you are entitled to claim compensation, we will provide you with the right solicitor to handle your airplane illness claim.

Broken Or Faulty Seat Injuries

In-flight, injuries could be caused by broken or faulty seats. For example, if there is a loose spring in the seat poking through, this can stab the passenger. A faulty mechanism could cause the passenger back injuries. If you have been injured because of a broken or faulty airplane seat, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. Call AccidentClaims.co.uk to see if you have grounds to pursue a claim.
