    Filing a Claim After an Airport Injury

    PLAY

    "She cares about her people. That is what's different about Betty." -Erin, Former Client

    Immediately after experiencing an injury at an airport, the injured person should first seek medical assistance from airport police or paramedics on site. They can then request an incident report to be filed before resuming travel – be sure to obtain a copy of the incident report. From there, the injured plaintiff has 2 years from the date of the accident to file a premises liability claim for damages. The quicker they get started on the case the better, as they can more readily obtain the relevant evidence and recall who is at fault (e.g., an airport employee is at fault for failing to maintain the premises, a fellow traveler is at fault for not looking after their luggage that has barred the walkway). 

    If the injured party seeking compensation is an airport employee, they can file a workers’ compensation claim instead. Note that workers’ compensation is a no-fault program, which means the injured victim does not need to prove negligence. As long as the injury occurred while the individual was performing their work duties on work time, they are covered by workers’ compensation.

Let an experienced attorney handle your case while you focus on dealing. Davis Injury Firm will take a detailed look at the circumstances of your airport accident and strategize a strong claim for damages.
