Airport Accident Attorney
Not all aircraft accidents and airline injuries are plane crashes that make the news. Many accidents involving air travel occur before the aircraft ever eaves the ground. Some air accidents and injuries happen in the airport or at the departure gate before the victim ever boards the aircraft. Falling baggage, airline employee negligence, as well as poorly maintained airports & departure/arrival gates are sometimes the cause of airport injuries. Unsupervised baggage claim areas, dangerous escalators, and wet floors are some of the places & conditions that often contribute to air travel accidents and airport injuries.
Depending on where the air travel injury or accident occurs will often dictate what parties may be responsible. Determining whether the airlines, the airport authority, the baggage handlers, the airport contractors, the airport vendors, or any combination thereof are at fault for an aircraft, air travel, or airport injury claim can complicate things.
If you have been injured in an airport, in an aircraft, or have been in an accident during the course of air travel, it’s always good advice to seek legal advice when there’s a question about your legal rights. Settling any kind of case, especially an air travel accident, airline injury or aircraft accident without seeking legal counsel can prevent you and your family from getting the most compensation you may deserve or need. Most airline companies are self insured up to a certain dollar amount and in some instances will attempt to settle with you quickly for less than you or your family needs and deserves.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of an airline accident, airport injury, or any injury during the course of air travel, Simon Herbert & McClelland LLP can help you to determine a course of action to pursue compensation for you or your loved one’s injuries. In air travel accident and injury cases, knowing which party or parties may be responsible can be a key factor in obtaining the best possible settlement. Consulting a lawyer can not only help you understand the types of damages you may be entitled to recover, but can also result in a more favorable settlement than you or your family could obtain on your own.
