How to Sue an Airport in New York State For an Injury

Though the fear of flying is well-documented, especially in today’s day and age, the truth is, airports are equally, or even perhaps more dangerous than the planes and jets that leave them. If you have recently been injured in an airport accident, you must read on and reach out to our experienced New York City personal injury attorney to learn more about how our firm can help you through the legal process going forward. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What causes airport accidents?

Several different factors contribute to airport accidents, though the most common is airport owner negligence. Some of the most common causes of airport accidents include defective elevators and escalators, faulty stairwells or handrails, spills on airport floors or restrooms, broken sidewalks or dangerous airport parking lot conditions.

How do I know if I qualify for compensation after an airport accident in New York State?

To qualify for financial compensation, you must first retain the legal services of an experienced attorney who can determine liability for the accident. In many cases, the property owner is responsible for inadequately maintaining their premises, however, in other cases, you may have a product liability lawsuit if a defective product was negligently manufactured or designed (such as airport elevators or escalators). To win a premises liability lawsuit, your attorney will have to prove that the property owner knew or should have reasonably known about the safety hazard present, failed to fix it and that you were injured and suffered significant damages as a result. No matter the cause of your accident, our experienced New York City personal injury attorney is here to help.

How long can I wait to sue for an airport accident injury in New York?

Generally, in New York State, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years. However, in many cases, New York airports are owned by the Port Authority, which means you must file a Notice of Claim within months–not years–of your accident. This drastically shrinks the window of time you have to seek the justice you deserve, so you cannot afford to wait–simply reach out to our firm today so we can begin the claims process on your behalf.
