You may ask a question – why would I use your services if I can claim for my rights myself?
The point is that obtaining compensation from the airlines is not always as easy as it may seem from first glance. Even though all airlines have an individual claim submission form on their web-page, they often ignore individual complaints, artificially lapse the time, offer different benefits to the passengers which are significantly lower than the amount of compensation granted by the legislation, use “convincing” but irrelevant arguments or use any other method to push the passenger forget about the compensation which is due.
Airlines often try to avoid their liability hoping that passengers will not be able to go through the long and complex legal procedures or to take the case to Court.
When passengers are represented by Companies, airlines realize that they cannot avoid responsibility so easily. Our company is ready to complete all necessary steps and procedures, handle all legal paperwork and if required, take the case to court. If that is the case, apart from the compensation which is due, airlines will have to pay for the court and attorney costs. This is the reason why airlines are forced to perform their liabilities imposed by legislation and pay compensation to the passenger without lengthy and expensive court procedures.
