While airports are generally safe places to visit, accidents do occur here. If you happen to be visiting during peak travel times, your chance of being involved in an accident will increase significantly. If you take a moment to look around the airport, you will see many obstacles waiting to cause injury. Wheeled suitcases with extendible handles are commonly seen in airports but can cause nasty trip and fall accidents, as can improperly signed wet floors and baggage left in public walkways.
Accidents involving airport vehicles and manual handling accidents are also a regular occurrence, with claims lawyers in Solihull enjoying something of a growing industry in the town – there are four offices alone just on Strattford Road.
Actions to take if you have sustained an airport injury
While the ground staff in airports do their best to ensure that your transition from the airport lounge to the gangway is a safe one, accidents can happen at any time. After sustaining an injury at an airport, you should:
- Report your injury to a member of staff and ask them to record your details in their accident book
- Seek medical advice from a trained healthcare professional
- Obtain evidence in the form of photographs
- Obtain the contact details of any witnesses to your accident
- Contact claims lawyers in Solihull for expert guidance
