Please continue reading and speak with our experienced Texas personal injury attorneys to learn more about how we can help. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most frequent causes of airport accidents?

Airport accidents happen for several reasons, and at times, they are simply unavoidable. However, they are generally a result of negligence on the part of airport management or staff. Some of the most common causes of airport accidents include spills in restrooms or on airport floors leading to slip and falls, unsafe parking lots, unsafe sidewalks, defective airport elevators or escalators, and more.

What should I do if I am hurt in an airport accident?

If you are injured in an airport, the first thing you should do is call the police and notify the airport management of the accident. You should then ask anyone who saw the accident for their contact information so they can corroborate your claim at a later date. From here, you should take pictures of the unsafe condition that caused your accident. You should then seek immediate medical treatment and ensure you ask your doctor for all documentation/bills associated with your injury. Finally, you should retain the services of an experienced Texas personal injury attorney who can help you recover the compensation you deserve.

How long will I have to sue an airport for an injury in Texas?

When someone is injured in an accident, they will have to file their personal injury claim in accordance with the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, generally, two years, which means that you will have two years from the date of your accident to sue the liable party. If you wait any longer than two years, you will most likely be permanently time-barred from suing. Our firm is ready to help you today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
