Personal Injuries in Airports

Q: Who is responsible for personal injuries that happen in airports?

New York City airport accident attorneys know there are more to airport-related lawsuits than those involving airplane crashes. 

Each day, hundreds of thousands of business and leisure travelers arrive and depart from the many New York City airports. Unfortunately, some of them sustain unexpected and serious injuries that may result in a personal injury lawsuit.

While the accidents may sometimes be entirely or partially caused by the victim, very often the airport and/or an airline may be totally or partially responsible. If the airline--generally through its employees’ actions or inactions--or the airport is found to be liable for the incident that led to the injuries, the victim may be entitled to compensatory damages. 

Airport accidents span several degrees of severity--from cuts and grazes to broken bones to traumatic brain injuries or amputated digits and everything in between. 

A small sample of situations or conditions that may lead to an airport injury include but are not limited to:

  • Slip, trip and fall accidents due to wet floors, frayed carpeting, broken stairs and more
  • Elevator and escalator and jetway malfunctions or accidents
  •  Luggage-related accidents involving carousels, lifting, transporting
  • Physical fights or altercations between passengers and airline or airport personnel
  • Collisions or accidents involving airport shuttles or transportation inside or outside an airport.

The doctrine of premises liability provides that residential and commercial property owners have a duty to maintain their property which guests and visitors enter upon in a safe condition. Failure to do so could result in liability to the victims who suffer injuries from a dangerous or unsafe condition on the property.
