Getting help from injury lawyers in Middleton St George
You might be needing to find a firm of injury lawyers in Middleton St George, for example, if you have been injured in an accident that happened within the last two or three years, which you can prove was not your fault.
Generally you have three years in which to make a personal injury compensation claim for an injury or injuries sustained in an accident for which another person was to blame. However you only have two years in which to claim for injuries sustained in an accident in an aircraft, at sea, or at an airport.
Accidents at airports
If you live in Middleton St George, you are within easy reach of Durham Tees Valley Airport. Air travel is one of the safest ways (if not the safest way) of getting from A to B. However in recent years there have been several accidents reported airports. A bird strike was the cause of an aborted takeoff but luckily no one on board was injured in the accident. Bird strikes can cause accidents and these are particularly dangerous if the bird gets sucked into an engine. Yet another accident occurred when a pilot had to make a crash landing at an airport when his Piper Seneca had undercarriage problems. Again, the pilot was uninjured.
Airports can be dangerous places, both for passengers and staff. Slips, trips and falls can happen anywhere, and if you fall while on an escalator, you could sustain a severe injury. You may have been jolted from behind by another person’s bag falling, or the escalator may have malfunctioned. You may also have slipped on a wet floor and if there were no hazard signs in place, you may be able to prove that negligence on the part of airport staff caused your injury.
