Do you need to contact Rutherglen accident claim solicitors after being hurt at an airport?
Although there are five or six well-known airports in the United Kingdom, there are actually many more airports and private runways which cater for passengers travelling abroad. In fact, many people prefer to use a smaller airport when they are travelling as there are less people around and fewer queues to contend with.
However, even if you choose to depart from a smaller airport, it’s likely that you will still have access to a range of shops and restaurants whilst you’re waiting for your flight. In fact, many airport lounges now resemble shopping malls simply because there is so much to do and see whilst you’re waiting for a flight.
As an airport, however, all shops and shop staff must adhere to very strict health and safety rules. There are likely to be a number of restricted areas which only specific staff members are allowed to enter and staff, as well as members of the public, must respect this. In addition to this, shops based in airport departure lounges must be careful of what goods they actually sell. There are now numerous items that passengers aren’t allowed to take on board a flight and customers may make complaints if they purchase an item in the departure lounge only to find that they have to discard it moments later if they aren’t allowed to board the plane with it.
Like with any public area, there is always the possibility that someone could suffer an injury whilst they are at an airport. This can be particularly distressing if you suffer an injury whilst waiting for a flight as there is a chance that you could miss your flight if you need to access medical help.
As with any type of injury or illness, if you can show that your injuries weren’t actually your fault, you may have a chance of making a compensation claim with help from Rutherglen accident claim solicitors. If, for example, you slipped on a wet floor which hadn’t been signposted, you could potentially make a compensation claim against the airport staff with help from Rutherglen accident claim solicitors.
