Recovering Compensation After Airport Accidents in NYC

Most people are not nearly as afraid of airports as they are of their flight, however, as you know, accidents can happen virtually anywhere. If you are someone who was recently injured in an airport accident due to no fault of your own, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Brooklyn personal injury lawyer to learn more about airport accidents and how our firm can assist you if you have been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of airport accidents?

Airport accidents can happen for several reasons, though they are usually a result of negligence, either on the part of the airport ownership or airport staff. Serious slip and fall accidents can occur in airport parking lots, on airport sidewalks, and in airport restrooms & restrooms themselves. Additionally, there are times where people are injured on defective airport escalators or while in defective airport elevators. If you were injured due to no fault of your own, there is a very good chance that you may qualify for financial compensation in a premises liability claim.

What damages can I recover if I am injured in an airport accident?

If you were injured in an airport accident due to no fault of your own, you may be able to recover two types of damages: economic damages and non-economic damages. Essentially, economic damages deal with the financial cost of your injury, such as medical bills, lost wages from being unable to return to work as a result of the accident, and more. Non-economic damages, however, deal with intangible damages, such as the loss of enjoyment of life and pain and suffering. That being said, though financial compensation cannot make up for the trouble you’ve incurred as the result of your accident, it can help you on your way to recovery. You should also ensure that you file your claim within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is, generally, three years, which means that in most cases, you will have three years from the date of your accident to pursue compensation from the liable party. Do not wait longer than three years, for if you do, you will most likely be barred from suing.
