While countless people fly into, and out of, various airports in California on a daily basis, including the Placerville and Georgetown airports without issue, the unfortunate reality is that not everyone is so lucky. Airport accidents do happen, and if you’ve recently been hurt in one, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of the physical, financial, and emotional burdens you’ve incurred. Continue reading and speak with our El Dorado County personal injury lawyer to learn more about airport accidents and how our firm can help if you’ve been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are the most common causes of airport accidents?
Airport accidents can occur for several reasons, though they are frequently the result of airport management or staff negligence. Some of the most common causes of airport accidents that our firm sees are slip and fall accidents due to spilled liquids left unattended in airport restrooms or walkways, unsafe airport restaurant or shop conditions, poorly-lit airport parking lots, negligent or insufficient security, construction work occurring on the premises, unsafe airport sidewalks, and more.
What should I do after an airport accident?
After sustaining an injury in an airport accident, you should first notify security of your injury. They should call an ambulance and the police to the scene. You should also photograph the unsafe airport conditions that caused your accident and ask any witnesses of your accident for their contact information so they may verify your claim in the future. Once you receive medical treatment and obtain a copy of all medical documentation/bills associated with your injury, you should retain the services of a knowledgeable California personal injury lawyer who can work to obtain all other evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof, such as airport surveillance footage of your accident.
How long will I have to file a premises liability claim in California?
The statute of limitations for premises liability claims in California is, under most circumstances, two years, which means that you will have to file your claim within two years of the date of your accident. Bear in mind that the longer you take to file your claim, the more challenging it will become to prove that your injury was the direct result of another party’s negligence. Our firm is ready to help you today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
