Injured in an Airport Accident?
We can help see if you have grounds to file a claim!
Airports are giant hubs of activity throughout the United States, and while they are pivotal to the lives of many individuals, they are not always safe. While many people think of aviation accidents that occur in the skies, there are many accidents that can happen before the plane ever leaves the ground.
Some of the most common airport accidents include:
- Slip, trip & falls on jetways & boarding ramps
- Slip, trip & falls on escalators, rolling board staircases & pathways
- Motor vehicle accidents on the runway, parking lots & surrounding roads
- Work-related accidents (such as carrying & lifting accidents)
Understanding the Montreal Convention
The Montreal Convention, previously known as Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for International Carriage by Air, is international law that was put into place to protect the rights of passengers, as well as establish rules regarding baggage and cargo. This law is applicable to passengers who are injured during an international flight or while embarking / disembarking an international flight.
Under the Montreal Convention:
“The carrier is liable for damage sustained in case of death or bodily injury of a passenger upon condition only that the accident which caused the death or injury took place on board the aircraft or in the course of any of the operations of embarking or disembarking.”
