Airports are busy places where everybody has somewhere to be and is usually rushing to get there. With so many people rushing around in a crowded space, it’s perhaps inevitable that airport accidents have the potential to happen at any time.
What sort of accidents could possibly happen in an airport, you might be wondering? Here are just a few of the most common airport accidents that the team at Accident Advice Helpline has handled claims for:
- Slips, trips and falls – in the airport lounge, at the gates, in the duty-free shop or even by the bar
- Injured whilst lifting luggage off the baggage carousel
- Food poisoning after dining at the airport
- Lacerations from faulty airport seats, trolleys or other broken furniture
- Slipping on a wet floor
- Injured after being hit by an airport vehicle
- Injured whilst disembarking from aircraft or travelling through the airport
If you’ve been injured in an airport accident, you might be eligible to claim personal injury compensation, provided you make a claim within three years of your accident occurring.
Should you make a claim?
If your accident was your own fault, such as tripping over your own suitcase, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to make a personal injury claim. However, if you have been injured as a result of somebody else’s negligence – for example if you have broken your ankle after slipping on a wet floor or suffered food poisoning after dining at the airport – then you’re entitled to claim compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline is here to help.
We provide a 100% no win, no fee* service and aim to make the claims process stress-free, so it’s unlikely you’ll need to attend court as most claims can be processed over the phone. Whether your holiday has been ruined by your airport accident or you have needed time off work to recover after a slip, trip or fall, we can help you claim the compensation you deserve for your pain, suffering and financial losses.
Will my claim be successful?
Of course, we can’t say 100% for sure whether your claim will be successful, but we do provide a 100% no win, no fee* service which means we truly have your interests at heart – we want you to be compensated after your accident.
