Passenger hit by drinks trolley sues airline


Qatar Airways sued for medical damage to knee

Qatar Airways is being sued for damages two years after a drinks trolley collided with the knee of an Australian passenger on a flight from Doha to Melbourne. The passenger, John Karatzaferis, alleges he is still suffering from “pain, tenderness and limitation of movement” in his left knee as a result.
He says a flight attendant hit him while pushing the trolley along the aisle, adding that the accident made an existing arthrosis – degenerative disease of the joints – much worse. The “chronic pain and dysfunction” has also led to psychological injuries including “anxiety and depression”.
It is the latest in a string of legal actions to be launched against international airlines in the last year where passengers allege injury or mistreatment by crew or ground staff.
