What You Should Know About Airport Accidents in NYC

Many people are afraid of flying, and understandably so. It’s not every day that we find ourselves thousands of feet in the air. However, you should note that airport accidents are far more common than accidents that happen in the air. Read on and reach out to our experienced Bronx slip and fall lawyer to learn more about airport accidents and how our firm can help if you’ve been wrongfully injured in one.

Common Causes of Airport Accidents

Airports house a wide array of amenities, including restaurants, bars, food courts, gift shops, and more. These amenities, as well as other parts of airport grounds, such as elevators/escalators, walkways, and more, must be maintained to ensure the premises are safe for all who use them. Unfortunately, there are times where airports aren’t regularly maintained and become unsafe. Spilled liquids, debris in heavily-trafficked areas, defective elevators/escalators, and more can all cause serious slip and fall accidents.

Documenting an Airport Accident

If you are injured in an airport accident, there is a very good chance that a security camera captured your accident as it happened. However, if you can, you should try to document the accident yourself as well. Once you hit the ground, you should alert any police officers or security guards nearby and have them send medical help to the scene. You should also take pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident and ask witnesses for their contact information. After you’re treated at a hospital and in stable condition, you should speak with a competent Bronx personal slip and fall lawyer as soon as you can.

Airport Accidents Often Entail a Different Timeframe to File Injury Claims

One of the most important things you should understand about airport accident claims is that you will have far less time to file your claim than you would if you were filing a standard personal injury claim. This is because most airports in New York State are owned by the Port Authority. Therefore, if you are injured in an airport accident, you are required to file a Notice of Claim within 90 days of your accident. From there, you must file your personal injury claim within one year and 90 days from the date of your accident. Our firm is here to help you today. All you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
