The Danger of Jetways

Jetways are the movable connector that reaches out to the airplane entrance to allow passengers onto and off of an airplane.  These jetways can be dangerous to passengers as they are generally operated and maintained by humans and mistakes do happen.

For example, an improperly placed jetway can cause a tripping hazard for those stepping onto or off of a plane.  An employee may forget to lock a jetway or may attempt to connect the jetway before an airplane has come to complete stop.  In each of these instances, and in many others, the jetway can become a very dangerous place for you and your family.

It takes considerable effort and dedication to maintain jetways.  They require constant maintenance and weather conditions and normal use can cause stress on the jetways leading to damaged or worn parts.  Regular and proper inspection of each jetway is the responsibility of the airports.

Failing to properly maintain a jetway can lead to passengers suffering from broken or fractured bones, torn ligaments or tendons, as well as a number of other serious injuries.  The airport is liable for these injuries and you should have an experienced and dedicated attorney fighting on your behalf to get you the compensation that you deserve.

Remember that airports are always under pressure to make trips move as quickly as possible and oftentimes employees can rush and neglect passenger safety.  If an airport places profits in front of passenger safety and someone gets injured, that airport should be held liable for those injuries.  James Ponton and the dedicated team of legal professionals at Ponton Law can help if you or a loved one has been injured while using a jetway.

How We Can Help

Georgia is home to many airports including Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL).  ATL is one of the largest and busiest airports in the world, with the distinction of having moved more than 100 million passengers in a single year.  Airports that service this many people must do so in a safe and orderly fashion.  If ATL, or another airport, fails to maintain its property safely then we make sure they are held liable for the harms they create.

We have helped those who were injured by the negligence or recklessness of airports.  The injuries caused by the improper care and operation of jetways can be significant.  Let us help you fight the airports to ensure that you get the full compensation you deserve for your injuries.
