Air hostess serves up accident at work compensation claim

A former air stewardess, who was hit on the head by a falling canister while on duty, is to claim accident at work compensation thought to be in the region of £100,000 to £300,000.

The 41-year-old woman from Buckinghamshire had been serving passengers on an aircraft which was delayed at Heathrow airport when the incident occurred. According to a High Court writ, the hostess went to the rear galley to fetch more water and had been picking up ice, which had been knocked onto the floor when a heavy metal canister fell from a cupboard above and struck her on the head.

The hostess is now seeking personal injury compensation from the airline after claiming that the accident left her with "serious neurological consequences" which have prevented her from returning to work.

The claimant's personal injury lawyers claim that the incident came as a result of negligence and that the airline breached its legal duties by failing to safely store the canister.

A spokesperson for the airline confirmed that an accident at work compensation claim had been received from a former cabin crew member and that the complaint was being looked into by solicitors.
