Collective Transportation
Accidents: Air, Land and Sea

Collective transportation accidents usually involve the application of international conventions in relation to liability and damages, for example, the Montreal Convention for aviation, the Athens Convention for maritime or the Wern Convention for railway (also known as the COTIF Convention).

In Europe, international treaties often combine (and occasionally interfere) with European regulations and directives for the protection of consumers and passengers.

An additional level of complexity comes when these elements are mixed with local procedural law, investigation of causes, criminal liabilities, evaluation of damages, etc.

The difficulty of the case can further increase if a party other than the carrier itself can be deemed liable.
