AIRPORT SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS

Many people will be leaving on summer vacations soon. While some will be driving to reach their destinations, other will choose flying as their means of travel. Airports seem to be more crowded than ever these days. People are often in a hurry as they try to get through security and to their boarding gates. They are carrying large and heavy pieces of luggage as they try to read signs and listen to announces over the PA system. As a result, someone may not notice a spill on the floor or torn carpet that can cause them to slip and fall.

Airports are just like any other establishment. They have a duty to protect the people on the premises from hazardous conditions that can result in a fall. Furthermore, the establishments within the airport such as restaurants and stores have the same duty to protect customers from dangers conditions that can result in a slip and fall.

When the airport or the establishment fails in this duty of care, one or both can be held responsible for injuries resulting from a slip and fall accident. Because numerous companies are conducting business at airports, it can be difficult to determine who was at fault for causing the fall. It is important to retain an experienced Sacramento slip and fall attorney as soon as possible. Depending on the entity responsible for your injury, you may be required to provide notice of your claim within a short period to protect your right to file a lawsuit.

Proving Fault in an Airport Slip and Fall Case

The potential causes of a slip and fall accident in an airport are numerous. From slick floors and cluttered walkways to escalators and uneven flooring, you can experience a fall in any area of the airport. To recover compensation for your injuries, you must prove that a dangerous condition existed, the entity responsible for the property knew or should have known about the condition, and nothing was done to correct or warn of the dangerous condition. In addition, you must prove that your fall and the resulting injuries were directly caused by the hazard or dangerous condition.

Proving that a slip and fall is the fault of the airport or one of the many businesses within the airport can be difficult but not impossible. Airports have excellent security monitoring systems that can often provide excellent evidence of the incident. However, obtaining this footage may be difficult. You need an attorney who understands the legal process for requesting the footage. Furthermore, you need an attorney who can sort out the various entities who may be liable so that you can name the correct party in your claim. Naming a party that is not responsible results in a denial of your claim.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.
