    Managing partner Dieter Heine succeeded in obtaining a landmark decision from the European Court of Justice

    Vavrovsky Heine Marth‘s partner, Dieter Heine, and his team succeeded in obtaining a landmark decision from the European Court of Justice: From now on, airlines worldwide are held liable for psychological consequences of accidents, caused during flights.

    The legal dispute arose between a traveler, who has been represented by attorney at law, Dieter Heine,  and the low-cost airline Laudamotion (subsidiary of Ryanair) (C-111/21). The Austrian Supreme Court had referred the case to the European Court of Justice for clarification.

    Specifically, the Austrian court wanted to know whether mental impairment of travelers caused by an accident, constitutes "physical injury", within the meaning of the Montreal Convention, for which the airline might be liable.

    With today’s decision, the European Court of Justice makes a fundamental global impact on international passenger air traffic.
