Moving Sidewalk Injuries

Serious injuries can happen anywhere and anytime.  Airports are particularly congested places where injuries occur with surprising frequency.  Airports have a duty to inspect their property and to take reasonable steps inspect the terminals and to make sure the facilities are safe for use by you and your family.

These inspections include looking at and testing any moving sidewalks.  This means that each airport should take the time to make sure their moving sidewalks are operating correctly and that protections are in place for the safe and efficient use of the sidewalks.  For example, the entrances and exits of moving sidewalks should be clearly identified and safe for use.

Airports make money by moving as many people as possible in as little amount of time from one place to the next.  Airports, however, should not be allowed to put profits before the safety of those using the terminals.  A moving sidewalk injury can occur in a number of ways and can lead to serious injuries such as broker or fractured bones.

Contact us immediately if you need legal assistance after an accident.  The legal team and Ponton Law can evaluate your entire case.  We can even help you find a dedicated medical professional to get you a proper and complete evaluation.

What Should I Do After My Injury?

Getting the compensation you deserve after a serious injury is a process that we can help you through.  However, you will want to help yourself after your injury by taking steps to ensure that the scene of the accident is documented, witnesses are identified and that you receive a proper medical evaluation.

If you have been injured while using a moving sidewalk, you will want to try to identify what happened to cause your injury.  Seeking medical attention should be your first concern but if you are able, or if you are able to get someone else to, take pictures of the moving sidewalk (including any signage near the sidewalk) and, if possible, use a cellphone to take a video.

If there were witnesses to your accident, try to get their contact information.  Witnesses can be very useful in getting you the compensation that you deserve.  Remember to never sign any waivers or make any statements to employees of the airport.  Ask for medical attention and then seek legal support from us.
