What You Need to Know About Airport Accidents in New York State

Many people throughout the United States have a fear of riding on airplanes or jets. However, even more people are injured in airports themselves, such as LaGuardia, while waiting to board their flight. Please continue reading and speak with our experienced Bronx personal injury attorney to learn more about airport accidents and how our firm can help you if you’ve been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of airport accidents?

Airport accidents occur for a wide variety of reasons, though not unlike other accidents, they are usually due to negligence. Airports offer many amenities, including shops, bars, restaurants, and more. In many cases, individuals are hurt because of careless airport management or staff. Oftentimes, people are injured because of unsafe airport conditions, spills on airport floors or restrooms, broken elevators or escalators, inadequate security, poor lighting, and more.

How do I sue an airport for an injury?

If you are injured in an airport due to no fault of your own, you are most likely looking to hold the liable party responsible. To do so, you must hire an experienced Bronx personal injury attorney who can gather and present all of the evidence needed to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Some of the most useful forms of evidence include pictures of the unsafe condition that caused your accident, surveillance footage of your accident as it happened, medical documentation/bills relating to your injuries, police reports of the accident, witness statements, and more.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in New York State?

When someone is injured in an accident, they will have to file their personal injury claim within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York is generally three years, however, this is often not the case when it comes to airport accidents. This is because most airports in NYS are owned by the Port Authority. This means that you will have to file a Notice of Claim within 90 days of your accident, and from there, you will have to file your personal injury claim within one year and 90 days from the date of the accident. If you wait any longer than one year and 90 days, you will most likely be barred from suing. We are here to help you today.
