Causes of Airport Accidents
Airports often boast many features, including bars, restaurants, shops, elevators/escalators, and more. While these features all help enhance the experience of all those waiting to board their jet or plane, they also increase the risk of serious accidents occurring, especially when airport staff and management fail to ensure that all of these amenities are safe for regular public use. Some of the most common causes of airport accidents are as follows:
- Dangerous airport sidewalks
- Dangerous airport parking garages/parking lots
- Insufficient lighting
- Inadequate security
- Slippery airport floors
- Defective escalators/elevators
If you believe that you were wrongly injured in an airport accident, you should hire an experienced Tampa personal injury attorney who can first assess the circumstances of your accident to determine liability. In certain cases, airport accidents are the result of negligent airport staff or management, though in other cases, they are the result of a negligent product designer or manufacturer. Generally, however, most airport accidents are caused by unsafe airport conditions perpetuated by airport management or staff, and as long as our Hillsborough County personal injury lawyer can prove as much, you should win your claim.
Recovering Compensation After an Airport Accident
When an individual wins a personal injury claim, he or she may be entitled to financial compensation for two types of damages: economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages may help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and other monetary damages you’ve sustained as a result of your accident. Non-economic damages will help compensate you for non-monetary damages, such as emotional distress, the loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and more.
