Singapore Air Sued by Passenger for Injury From Bag, Today Says

May 13 (Bloomberg) -- Singapore Airlines Ltd. is being sued by a man after another passenger’s bag from an overhead compartment fell on his head during a flight in 2007, Today reported.

Mark David Ryan, who had to undergo neck surgery after the accident on board a flight bound for Hong Kong, is claiming more than S$60,000 ($43,500) in medical expenses incurred so far, the newspaper said, citing court documents filed. Ryan is also seeking damages for pain and suffering, loss of future earnings and earning capacity as well as future medical and transport costs, according to the report.

Singapore Air, represented by Rodyk and Davidson’s lawyers, is disputing the claim and Ryan’s version of events, saying it had taken all necessary measures to ensure the safety of its passengers, the newspaper said.
