Types of Airport Accidents
Airports are massive properties comprised of restaurants, bars, shopping, hotels, parking lots, and more. It takes a great deal of care to make sure no one becomes seriously injured anywhere on these properties. As a result, there are also a variety of different ways that people can get hurt in an airport accident. Some of the many causes of airport accidents that we see here at the Law Offices of Laurence C. Tarowsky include the following:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Negligent security
- Poor lighting
- Construction work
- Hotel accidents
- Restaurant accidents
- Dangerous sidewalks and parking garages
The Burden of Proof
Upon being injured in one of New York City’s airports, it is important that you notify security or airport staff immediately. Not only can they help you obtain medical attention, but they can document your injuries and help determine what the cause of the accident is. It is important to collect as much information about your accident as quickly as possible because if you decide to take legal action against the airport, you will be required to prove that they were negligent, which ultimately caused you to become injured. You can take pictures of the dangerous conditions, try to obtain surveillance footage, obtain the contact information of anyone who may have seen your accident take place, and more.
If you are able to prove that the airport was negligent, you may be entitled to recover significant compensation for the burdens that you have faced as a result of your accident. The economic damages that you may be entitled to can include the cost of your medical expenses, lost wages, and the need to hire in-home help. The noneconomic damages that you may be entitled to include compensation for your decreased quality of life, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.
