Most of us are more fearful of the actual flight than we are of arriving at and going through the airport. That said, airport accidents and injuries do happen, and if you’ve been hurt in one due to no fault of your own, you are most likely now seeking compensation to help you deal with the physical, financial, and emotional burdens you’ve incurred. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Orlando personal injury attorney to learn more about airport accidents and how we can help if you’ve been injured. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How do most airport accidents happen?
Airport accidents, just like most other accidents, are typically a result of negligence, either on the part of airport staff or ownership. Some of the most common causes of airport accidents include the following:
- Spills left uncleaned
- Unsafe airport restaurant conditions
- Spills left unattended
- Negligent security
- Unsafe airport parking lots or garages
- Defective elevators or escalators
How do I prove a personal injury claim?
If you’re injured in an accident caused by unsafe property conditions, it is paramount that you do everything in your power to document the incident. When it comes to airport accidents, in most cases, police or security are nearby. You should notify them or dial 911 of your accident at once, and medical treatment should be sent to the scene. If you can, you should ask witnesses for their contact information and take pictures of the unsafe property conditions. Surveillance footage of your accident should also exist, and we can help obtain it. As long as we can prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence, you should receive financial compensation in your personal injury claim.

What damages are recoverable in a personal injury claim?
When someone is injured in an accident and wins their personal injury claim, they may recover compensation to help them deal with any economic or non-economic damages they’ve sustained. Some examples of economic damages include the cost of medical treatment, lost wages from being unable to return to work, and more. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, can include pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
