With the holiday season upon us, many people will soon travel across the country to spend time with their loved ones. In many cases, this travel involves air travel. Most people are not afraid of airports and are leerier of the flight itself, however, there are times where airports can become extremely dangerous as well. Please continue reading and speak with our Orlando personal injury attorney to learn more about airport accidents and how we can help if you have been hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are the most common causes of airport accidents and injuries in Florida?
Airport accidents can occur for a wide range of reasons, though generally, they are the result of airport management or staff behaving negligently. Some of the most frequent causes of airport accidents in Orlando are unsafe airport parking lot/sidewalk conditions, food poisoning from airport restaurants, spills in airports causing slip and falls, and defective elevators/escalators.
Who is responsible for airport accidents?
After sustaining an injury in an airport, you will have to hire an experienced Florida personal injury attorney who can determine the liable party. Though it may seem obvious who is at fault, the truth is, this is not always the case. If our firm determines that a property owner knew or should have known about an unsafe condition, failed to fix it, and that you were injured and incurred significant damages as a result, we will most likely file a premises liability claim. If, however, we determine that you were injured because of a negligent elevator manufacturer or designer, we will most likely file a product liability claim.

How long will I have to file a personal injury claim in Florida?
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is, generally, four years, which means that if you have been injured in an airport, you cannot wait any longer than four years from the date of your accident to sue the liable party. If you do, you will most likely be permanently barred from suing. We are ready to help you today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
