We Provide Solutions

Over the recent years, the aviation industry has experienced an exponentially faster growth in terms of innovations compared to other forms of transportation. Due to this movement, traveling across hundreds to thousands of miles has noticeably become easier for many, and territorial borders have become less apparent. In simpler terms, the world has shrunk dramatically.

80% of Modern aircraft accidents result from Human Error

Mechanical failures were the primary cause of aviation accidents back in 1903 but those have dipped throughout the years.  Natural Causes will remain constant, but newer innovations and technology assure that remains unlikely. Laws that effect compensation are a lot more complex.

Laws that make compensations a lot more Complex

With the fading of borders, however, finding solutions to bureaucratic and legal issues has also become complex. Numerous factors determine the possible compensation to be received by an aggrieved claimant:

  • Type of flight: domestic or international
  • Place of ticket purchase
  • Passenger nationality
  • Applicability of national treaties
  • Manufacture location of the aircraft
  • Type of claims raised

Looking Back

McDonnell Douglas MD-82

In 1987, a Northwest Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-82 aircraft crashed on takeoff at Detroit’s Metropolitan Airport, killing 154 passengers on the plane and 5 on the ground. The only survivor was a 4-year-old girl. After investigation, the probable cause was deemed to be crew failure with regards to following their standard checklist.


On August 20, 2008, a similar case of crew failure occurred with another MD-82 aircraft operated by SPANAIR. As the Take-off Warning System (TOWS) failed to notify the pilots about the problem, the plane also crashed on takeoff at Madrid’s Barajas International Airport, killing 154 passengers and crew.

“Today, approximately 1100 MD Series aircraft with similar defects are still taking to the skies.”
