Abstract

The insidious condition of deep vein thrombosis contracted from long haul international flights has led to class actions in the UK and the USA. The culmination of these actions is represented by the case of Twardowski v American Airlines in the United States. In the wake of the 'no accident' finding in this case, itself part of a 19-case consolidated appeal, the door has closed on recovery for DVT claims. To wage a standard DVT case may now amount to professional negligence. Does there then remain an obligation on civil society to address the issue?
