Turner v. East West Airlines
In a global precedent setting case, the NSW Court of Appeal upheld a decision of the New South Wales Dust Diseases Tribunal awarding damages to an airline cabin attendant for the health consequences of exposure to fumes while onboard a BAe 146 airliner.
Turner Freeman partner, Tanya Segelov, acted for Joanne Turner, the plaintiff in the proceedings.
A large number of legal cases worldwide relating to fumes entering cabins in the aircraft had failed before Turner Freeman succeded in prosecuting this claim last year.
