Kegworth Air Disaster
Rodney Nelson-Jones acted for passengers and members of cabin crew who were involved in the Kegworth air disaster (also known as the M1 motorway crash). Rodney recovered compensation for many of the Northern Irish victims of a British Midlands flight which crashed onto the embankment of the M1 motorway near Kegworth, Leicestershire.
The scheduled flight was travelling from London Heathrow airport to Belfast and was attempting to conduct an emergency landing at East Midlands Airport when it crashed in 1989. Of the 126 people aboard, 47 died and 74, including seven members of the flight crew, sustained serious injuries.
Rodney was also a member of the solicitors' steering committee arising out of the Kegworth Air Disaster
