BRITISH AIRWAYS, together with Qantas, have won a case in the Australian High Court considered a landmark regarding deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Following a compensation claim by a Mr Brian Povey the court found that for the airlines to be liable for injury under the Warsaw Convention (the international agreement concerning airline damages) such injury would have to have been caused by an ”accident”. This was proven not so in this case and Mr Povey has no further right of appeal under the Australian legal system. In October the House of Lords will hear a similar case brought about by British litigants who were unable to prove their affliction to a lower court. The World Health Organisation (WHO) is due to publish findings of its long awaited DVT study later this year.
