Airport Accidents in Washington D.C. | What You Need to Know

There is nothing worse than sustaining an injury due to no fault of your own. Unfortunately, this is something that happens every day in Washington D.C. Accidents can occur just about anywhere–on the road, on the street, in apartments, and more. Airports are no exception. Though most of us are more scared of boarding a jet than going to the airport, the truth is, airport accidents are far more common than those involving airplanes. If you are someone who has been injured in an airport accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you heal. Our firm is here to help. Please continue reading and reach out to our knowledgeable Washington D.C. personal injury attorneys to learn more about how we can assist you through every step of the legal process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do most airport accidents happen?

Airports offer many amenities to those who are waiting to travel, including bars, shops, restaurants, and more. Though these are all convenient and can help pass the time, the truth is, these amenities mean that airport ownership and staff must do their part to ensure these features are safe at all times. When they fail to do so, the airport becomes unsafe, and people can sustain very serious injuries as a result. Some of the most common types of airport accidents that our firm sees include slip and fall accidents in restrooms and other areas of the airport where spills are left unattended, unsafe or poorly lit airport parking lots, defective elevators/escalators, and more.

Who is responsible for an airport accident?

After sustaining an injury in an airport accident, you must hire a skilled Washington D.C. personal injury attorney who can determine the liable party on your behalf. If our firm can prove that the property owner or staff either knew or should have known about the dangerous conditions, failed to fix them timely and that you were injured and sustained significant damages as a result, we will most likely file a premises liability claim. That being said, if we determine that you were injured because of a defective product or piece of machinery, such as a defective escalator, there is a very good chance that we will look to hold the product designer or manufacturer liable in a product liability lawsuit. The bottom line is that if you have been injured, we are here to help. Give us a call today.
