Though most of us fear the flight itself more than simply passing through the airport, the truth is, when airport staff or management is negligent, airports can become very unsafe. Please continue reading and speak with our experienced Alabama personal injury attorneys to learn more about airport accidents and how we can help if you’ve been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How do airport accidents happen?
Airport accidents can occur for a wide variety of reasons, though they are most often a result of negligence. Some of the most common causes of airport accidents are spills left unattended causing slip and falls, unsafe airport restaurants or shops, defective airport escalators or elevators, unsafe airport parking lots or garages, insufficient lighting, and more. If you were injured as a result of another party’s negligence, there is a very good chance that you will qualify for financial compensation in a personal injury claim. Our firm is here to help.
What should I do after an airport accident?
If you are injured in an airport accident, it is critical that you do everything in your power to document the incident. This is why you should notify security guards of the accident and ensure the police write up a report regarding your accident. You should also take pictures of the unsafe airport conditions that caused your accident and ask any witnesses who saw your accident for their contact information so they may verify your claim at a later date. Finally, once you receive medical treatment, you should retain the services of a knowledgeable Alabama personal injury attorney who can work to gather and present all additional evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, such as surveillance footage of your accident as it happened.
How long will I have to sue after a slip and fall accident in Alabama?
If you are injured in an Alabama airport accident, you will have to file your personal injury claim within the state’s statute of limitations, which is two years. This means that you will only have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party responsible for your injury. If you wait any longer than two years, you will most likely be permanently time-barred from suing. Give us a call today so we can begin the claims process on your behalf.
