What steps should I take if I have been injured in an airport?

You may have a viable premises liability claim if you have been injured in an airport due to the negligence of another. If you are able, it is important that you take the following steps immediately after your airport injury. These steps include:

  1. Call the authorities. The police will dispatch an ambulance and file a police report.
  2. Take photos and videos of the dangerous conditions that caused your accident.
  3. Collect contact information from any witness to the accident. These witnesses may be able to corroborate your version of the events.
  4. Seek medical treatment to ensure your injuries are properly treated. Ask your doctor to provide you with medical documentation pointing to the origin and severity of your injuries.
  5. Retain the services of a skilled personal injury attorney that can help you navigate through the claims process.

How long do I have to file my personal injury claim in New Jersey?

In New Jersey, there is a statute of limitations of two years for most personal injury accidents. This means that if you fail to file your airport accident within two years from the date of the injury, you will lose the opportunity to file your claim, and you will also miss out on the ability to obtain the compensation you deserve.
