What You Need to Know About Airport Accidents in NYC

Many people are scared of boarding jets and flying away. This is understandable, however, the truth is that accidents occur far more frequently in airports themselves than they do in the sky, and if you’ve been injured in such an accident, it is critical that you continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Queens slip and fall accident lawyer who can work to uncover the financial compensation you deserve and need to heal. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding airport accidents and the personal injury claims process ahead:

What are the most common causes of airport accidents?

Airport accidents can have several potential causes. Some of the most frequent causes of airport injuries are as follows:

  • Unsafe airport parking lots
  • Unsafe airport sidewalks
  • Negligent security
  • Insufficient security
  • Wet floors
  • Unsafe airport restaurant conditions
  • Defective elevators or escalators
  • Dangerous stairwells

Who is responsible for airport accidents?

When someone sustains an injury in an airport accident, they will have to hire an experienced Queens slip and fall accident lawyer who can analyze the facts of the incident and from there, determine the liable party. In most cases, when someone is injured because of an unsafe property condition, they will file a premises liability claim against the property owner. However, if you were injured because of an unsafe elevator or escalator design or negligent manufacturing, for example, our firm will most likely file a product liability claim on your behalf.

Satisfying the Burden of Proof

When someone files a personal injury claim of any kind, they will be required to satisfy the burden of proof. Simply put, this means that they must prove that they were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. This is why it is always best to gather as much evidence as possible at the scene of the accident, if possible. Fortunately, airports are equipped with extensive video surveillance, so if you were hurt, the accident was most likely captured on camera. Additionally, you should ask witnesses for their contact information, take pictures of the unsafe airport condition that caused your injury, and ensure that you seek immediate medical treatment. Finally, be sure to hire a seasoned Queens slip and fall accident lawyer who can fight for the compensation you deserve.
