British tourist recovered £3,250 after accident on Thomsonfly plane

A British tourist was on a Thomsonfly flight to Alicante in February 2007. He was sitting in an aisle seat when two cabin attendants came down the aisle pushing a sales trolley. As they were moving past the Claimant one of the side doors on the trolley opened and hit the Claimant full on his right knee. 

The Claimant’s legs had not been protruding and were within the confines of his seating area.  The cabin attendants stopped immediately and apologised to the Claimant. The incident was recorded in the accident book and the Claimant was offered an ice pack and painkillers. 

On arrival in Alicante the Claimant went to hospital where he was diagnosed with a soft tissue contusion injury to his knee.  He also sought advice from his GP on his return to England. The Claimant suffered with pain and discomfort in his knee for approximately 12 months after the accident.

Following negotiations between Irwin Mitchell  and the Defendant’s insurers, settlement was agreed on behalf of the Claimant in the sum of £3,250.
