George v Eagle Air Services Ltd

“The doctrine of res ipsa loquitur applied in aviation cases where a claim for damages was based on an allegation of negligence which caused an aircraft to crash. The burden of proof then shifted to the defendant owners/operators of the aircraft to produce an explanation which was consistent with the air crash having occurred without any fault on their part.”


Please note once a case has been fully reported in one of the ICLR series the corresponding WLR Daily summary is removed.
