It was a pleasure to deal with Dalippe and his team. We were kept up to date at every juncture with regards to the progress of our case and our options were outlined in a way that made it simple to give instruction. We would like to thanks Dalippe for his perseverance and securing an exceptional outcome for our son. We wish Dalippe the very best for the future.

So helpful and super easy to deal with, they looked after everything, I had absolutely nothing to worry about and could always reach them by calling or emailing if I had any questions at all. Would definitely recommend and go back there myself if ever needed again. Thank you!

The Montreal Convention specifies the liability Aircraft carriers have in relation to any injury sustained while on the Aircraft or in the process of embarking or disembarking

Article 17 – Death and injury of passengers

  1. The carrier is liable for damage sustained in case of death or bodily injury of a passenger upon condition only that the accident which caused the death or injury took place on board the aircraft or in the course of any of the operations of embarking or disembarking.
  2. The carrier liable for damage sustained in case of destruction or loss of, or of damage to, checked baggage upon condition only that the event which caused the destruction, loss or damage took place on board the aircraft or during any period within which the checked baggage was in the charge of the carrier. However, the carrier is not liable if and to the extent that the damage resulted from the inherent defect, quality or vice of the baggage. In the case of unchecked baggage, including personal items, the carrier is liable if the damage resulted from its fault or that of its servants or agents.
  3. If the carrier admits the loss of the checked baggage, or if the checked baggage has not arrived at the expiration of twenty-one days after the date on which it ought to have arrived, the passenger is entitled to enforce against the carrier the rights which flow from the contract of carriage.

Article 20 – Exoneration
 
If the carrier proves that the damage was caused or contributed to by the negligence or other wrongful act or omission of the person claiming compensation, or the person from whom he or she derives his or her rights, the carrier shall be wholly or partly exonerated from its liability to the claimant to the extent that such negligence or wrongful act or omission caused or contributed to the damage. When by reason of death or injury of a passenger compensation is claimed by a person other than the passenger, the carrier shall likewise be wholly or partly exonerated from its liability to the extent that it proves that the damage was caused or contributed to by the negligence or other wrongful act or omission of that passenger. This Article applies to all the liability provisions in this Convention, including paragraph 1 of Article 21.

Article 21 – Compensation in case of death or injury of passengers

  1. For damages arising under paragraph 1 of Article 17 not exceeding 100,000 Special Drawing Rights for each passenger, the carrier shall not be able to exclude or limit its liability.
  2. The carrier shall not be liable for damages arising under paragraph 1 of Article 17 to the extent that they exceed for each passenger 100,000 Special Drawing Rights if the carrier proves that:
  3. such damage was not due to the negligence or other wrongful act or omission of the carrier or its servants or agents; or
  4. such damage was solely due to the negligence or other wrongful act or omission of a third party.
