What to Know About Airport Accidents in New Jersey
Airport accidents are more common than you may think. With all of the hustle and bustle of travelers and lots of different amenities, there are a lot of different ways to become injured. Read on to learn more about airport injuries, the most common ways they occur, and what to do in the event of an injury.
What are the Most Common Airport Accidents?
There are a lot of ways to become injured in an airport. Airports have many different facets that need to be properly maintained. If something is not properly maintained, someone can become seriously injured. Some examples of common injuries include faulty escalators or elevators, slip and falls due to spills or wet bathroom floors, poorly lit parking lots and stairways, airport construction, debris, overcrowding, and so on.
What Should I do if I am Injured?
If you are injured, you will want to make sure you receive the proper medical attention. This will ensure that your injuries are tended to, while simultaneously providing you with medical documentation of your injury. You will also want to gather proof. In a personal injury case, you will need to prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. To prove this, you will want to take photos and videos of the hazardous materials that caused your injury. Additionally, you should gather the contact information of anyone who witnessed your accident.
How Long do I Have to File my Claim?
When you are recovering from an injury, taking legal action may be the last thing on your mind. But, you must make sure to file your claim in time. Generally, in Texas, the statute of limitations for a personal injury accident is two years. This means, if you do not file within two years from the date of your injury, you will likely lose your chance to receive compensation. Because airports are typically government property, you will have to file a Notice of Claim. This will inform the airport that you intend to sue. This will need to be filed early on in the process. To ensure that you do not miss any deadlines, you will want to contact an experienced personal injury as soon as possible.
