If you are hurt in an airport premises accident, get medical treatment for severe injuries at once. Even if you believe your injuries are minor, seek medical attention as soon as possible after the accident. Gather as much information as you can, including names and contact information for all parties involved and for any eyewitnesses to the event. Take pictures of the accident scene and any visible injuries you have. Then, as soon as possible after the accident, consult with an experienced Long Beach personal injury attorney to protect your rights.
Any party in an airport who causes an accident through negligence may be held liable for resulting injuries. Depending on how and where an airport premises accident occurred, potentially liable parties may include the government entity that owns the airport; a private business, such as a restaurant or a bar; an airline; or an individual who caused an accident by negligently operating an electric cart. Liability for airport accidents is not always clear, and California’s comparative fault laws apply.
