Airport Accident Attorneys in NYC
New York City is a major hub of travel for residents of the city and the surrounding metropolitan area. That being said, the three major airports that service the area, John F. Kennedy Airport, LaGuardia Airport, and Newark Airport, see millions of travelers every year. These airports are massive and require a diligent staff to ensure that there are no safety hazards present. It is challenging for staff to keep track of everything going on, which is why oftentimes, safety hazards arise without anyone noticing. When this happens, travelers or other airport employees may become seriously injured and suffer physical, emotional, and financial burdens for years to come. At Katter Law, we can effectively represent your interests and help you recover the compensation you deserve. Contact Katter Law today to discuss your case.
Types of Airport Accidents
It is no secret that airports are home to a wide range of restaurants, retail stores, hotels, parking facilities, lounges, bars, and other areas to accommodate travelers. Of course, with so much space, it is challenging to ensure that every area of an airport is safe at all times. When airport accidents do happen, people can become seriously injured. Some of the various airport accidents we handle at Katter Law include the following:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Negligent security
- Poor lighting
- Construction work
- Hotel accidents
- Restaurant accidents
- Dangerous sidewalks and parking garages
Fulfilling the Burden of Proof
In any personal injury case, the victim is required to fulfill the burden of proof. Therefore, if you have been seriously injured in an airport accident, you must inform the airport staff or security promptly. They can begin issuing medical attention that is necessary and assess what caused the accident to occur. Be sure to take photos and videos of the dangerous conditions that caused you to become injured if you are able to do so. Additionally, you should be sure to obtain the contact information of any witnesses who saw the accident occur so they can corroborate your story in the future.
If you can prove that the airport was negligent, you may be entitled to recover significant compensation for the burdens that you have faced as a result of your accident. The economic damages that you may be entitled to can include the cost of your medical expenses, lost wages, and the need to hire in-home help. The noneconomic damages that you may be entitled to include compensation for your decreased quality of life, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. Our firm is here to fight for your rights so you can focus solely on your recovery.
