Airport Accidents in Florida | What You Need to Know

As the holiday season approaches, more and more people throughout the state of Florida will use air travel to visit their friends and families.

If you are someone who has been injured in an airport accident in Florida, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and more. Read on and reach out to our knowledgeable Florida personal injury attorneys to learn more about how we can help you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are some of the most common causes of airport accidents?

Airport accidents happen for several different reasons, and at times, there are virtually inevitable. However, not unlike most accidents, airport accidents frequently occur due to negligence, usually on the part of airport management or staff. Some of the most common causes of airport accidents include unsafe airport parking lots (either due to insufficient lighting, security, uneven pavement, negligent signing, and more), unsafe airport sidewalk conditions, spills left unattended causing serious slip and fall accidents, unsafe airport restaurant/shop conditions, defective elevators/escalators in airports, and more. The bottom line is that if you were injured due to negligence, there is a very good chance that you will have a valid personal injury claim, and our firm is here to help.

Who is responsible for airport accidents?

In some instances, it can be rather complicated to identify the liable party for an airport injury, which is why you must retain the services of an experienced Jacksonville personal injury attorney who can analyze each aspect of your case. If we determine that you were injured because airport management or staff 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. On the other hand, if you were injured because of a defective product, such as an airport elevator or escalator, and we can prove that the injury occurred due to a negligent product designer or manufacturer, we will most likely file a product liability claim.
