What You Need to Know About Airport Accidents in New Jersey

While most of us are more worried about taking off in an airplane or jet, as opposed to simply waiting for one in an airport, there are various circumstances wherein airports can become serious safety hazards. Please continue reading to learn more about airport accidents and how our experienced New Jersey personal injury attorneys can help you if you have been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of airport accidents in New Jersey?

There are several attractions within airports, which means there are far more facets of the airport that will need cleaning, maintaining, and more. For example, restaurants must be clean and use fresh food, there should be no wet floors left unattended in airport restrooms, parking lots and sidewalks should be well-lit and safe for pedestrians at all times, and more. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and when property owners/staff fail to ensure airport conditions are safe for all, people can become seriously injured.

How do I know who is responsible for an airport accident?

As mentioned above, in many cases, as long as you can prove that the airport property owner knew or should have known about the unsafe conditions, failed to fix them, and that you were injured and sustained serious damages as a result, there is a very good chance that you can sue that property owner in a premises liability lawsuit. That being said, if you can prove that you were injured due to a product that was either negligently manufactured or designed, such as an airport elevator or escalator, then there is a very good chance that you may have grounds for a valid product liability lawsuit. Regardless of your circumstances, you need an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney on your side.

How long will I have to sue a property owner for an accident in New Jersey?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New Jersey is, generally, two years, so in most cases, whether you’re filing a premises liability lawsuit, a product liability lawsuit, or otherwise, you will have two years from the date of your accident to sue. If you wait any longer than two years, you will most likely be barred from suing.
