Everything You Need to Know About the Montreal Convention

Gain Insights into The Montreal Convention Provisions

Established in 1999, the Montreal Convention (MC99) is a treaty (international agreement) that sets the framework for international airline passenger rights. Parties to the convention are member states of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). Since almost all U.N. members are part of the ICAO, the Montreal Convention applies to many countries worldwide, including the United States.

The Montreal Convention ensures airline passengers do not have to prove negligence if their injuries or damages are under 128,000 SDR ($170 000). Instead, the airline is strictly held liable if the damages or injury incurred is within this limit. The airline can only avoid liability if the damages are above 128,000 SDR and they can prove the following:

  • The accident wasn’t due to their negligence
  • A third party is solely responsible for the accident.

If you or your loved one resides in the United States and have been involved in an international aviation accident, the Montreal Convention permits you to file a lawsuit in the United States. 

The Montreal Convention requires airlines to carry liability insurance. However, it does not accept compensation claims based on emotional or psychological damage if it is not connected to a physical injury. Finally, the Montreal Convention carries a two-year statute of limitations, or deadline, for filing suit.

What Types of Compensation Can You Claim in An International Airline Accident?

Below are answers to questions we receive relating to international airline accident attorneys and cases:

How Quickly Must I Hire International Airline Accident Lawyers After an Airline Accident?

The Montreal Convention requires that a lawsuit must be filed within two years of the accident. However, we recommend contacting us at the earliest possible time after the crash. This way, we will have enough time to understand your case’s peculiarities and provide prompt legal counsel. It also helps us to act fast in gathering evidence that substantiates your claims before such evidence is tampered with or disappears.

How Long Does an Aviation Lawsuit Take? 

International aviation accident lawsuits may take from a few months to years, depending on the case. An experienced international airline accident lawyer may facilitate and expedite the process through effective settlement discussions. Providing relevant and timely information to your attorney also reduces the time frame for your lawsuit.

Where Should My Airline Crash Lawsuit Be Filed?

Several factors should be considered when determining where to file your airline crash lawsuits. This may include witness location and legal limitations in a particular state. Note that law firms can litigate airline crashes outside their home jurisdictions. So, our skilled international air crash lawyers can provide you with quality legal representation regardless of location.

 How Much Does It Cost to Hire International Airline Attorneys? 

Injured parties often enter into a contingent fee agreement with their lawyers. In this arrangement, the attorney’s fee is a specific percentage of the amount of money recovered in the lawsuit. The law firm may also pay critical out-of-pocket fees to be reimbursed after the case. This could be done before or after the contingent fee is calculated.
