Well-grounded legal advice
Ground handling covers a wide range of activities carried out on behalf of airlines including:
- Handling of freight and baggage
- Ramp services
- Gate room departure services
- Waste disposal
- Safety related activities
Thousands of ground handling operations are undertaken every day with aircraft readied to depart on the next scheduled flight. There are however times when this process does not proceed as planned and damage, injury or impact to operational continuity may occur.
The types of claims we handle for insurers and ground handlers, who have operations based at airports throughout the world, include:
- Aircraft damage
- Fatal accidents and the associated inquests and claims
- Personal injury
- Third party property damage claims
Safe, efficient ground handling is essential to airline operations. There are many risks associated with the realities of working on the ramp. Selection of experienced lawyers is a key part of any claims defensibility programme.
Our knowledge of aviation and, airside operations in particular, make us an ideal partner for any cost conscious ground handlers and their insurers.
