Can I claim compensation for an injury sustained at an airport or on an aircraft?

In this video, John McCarthy answers the frequently asked question, “Can I claim compensation for an injury sustained at an airport or on an aircraft?”

Quick overview

Yes. The Montreal Convention covers any accident that occurs in an airport between security points before and after the flight. You don’t have to establish negligence under this convention – you just have to show that an accident occurred that was out of your control. If an accident occurs in the main area of the airport outside the security point then you need to pursue a case against the airport in that country.
