Common Airport Injuries
With the holiday travel season well underway, you may find yourself in an airport, train station or bus terminal. While the overwhelming majority of travelers will arrive safely, a handful may fall victim to an accident—and not all accidents happen in a vehicle.
Careless or neglectful maintenance may cause hazards at the airport, which could cause your travel plans to take an unexpected detour to the emergency room. Slip and fall accidents top the list of accidents people report at the airport, followed by elevator, escalator and automatic-door mishaps. The types of injuries that tend to result include:
- Broken bones
- Concussion or other traumatic brain injuries
- Crushed fingers or other extremities
If you’re recovering from injuries you sustained during travel, you don’t have to suffer alone. Working with an experienced airport accident lawyer can help you determine whether you may have a strong claim for damages. In some cases, you could even be reimbursed for your missed flight or other plans.
