Australian Law Firm Pursues 12 Qantas Injury Cases

Australian Law Firm Pursues 12 Qantas Injury Cases

LawFuel - The Law Jobs and Legal NewsWire

Law firm Slater & Gordon is investigating the potential claims of 12 passengers who suffered injuries when a Qantas flight from Singapore to Perth last month suddenly plunged hundred’s of feet.

The passengers have contacted the law firm’s Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne offices.
Slater & Gordon personal injury specialist Barrie Woollacott says the passengers have suffered a range of injuries from the flight, ranging from lacerations and soft tissue damage to spinal injuries.

“Some injuries are very serious and will cause lifelong problems for the victims,” he said.

“For the more serious injuries it is appropriate to wait until the condition stabilises before beginning a legal claim.

“However Qantas has acted quickly and responsibly to assist passengers affected by this incident, and we hope that the matters can be resolved quickly and without protracted legal action so that passengers can leave this frightening incident behind them.”
