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 to inspect the terminals and 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 broken 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?

Chemical And Electrical BurnsGetting 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:

  • The scene of the accident is documented
  • Witnesses are identified
  • 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.

Slip-and-Fall Cases Won

Accidents on some other individual's property occur, and injuries are frequently the outcome. Nevertheless, when somebody else's negligence (or carelessness) is a factor, you may be concerned about your legal rights. Whether you seek an insurance payout or bring a personal injury suit, you must prove that somebody else (the premises owner, in most cases) is legally liable for your injuries to win your claim. The following are frequently the major liability concerns in slip-and-fall cases:   What parties may be held accountable?   Were those individuals indeed negligent?   Whether the accident victim’s actions contributed to the accident? Liability Theories in Slip-and-Fall Cases An injured individual must normally show one of the following to hold another party liable for injuries sustained in a slip-and-fall incident: A premise owner (or an agent or employee of the property owner) should have detected a potentially hazardous situation and eliminated or corrected it…

Slip-and-Fall Interrogatories to Defendant

If you cannot resolve a slip-and-fall injury case out of court, the plaintiff might well be required to bring a personal injury suit in civil court. If this occurs, the parties to the litigation — that is, the complainant (the injured individual) and the defendant (often the premises owner) — will disclose information about the incident and crucial components of the complainant's claim in a procedure known as "discovery." The issuance of interrogatories from one side to the other is a key discovery tool. Interrogatories are written queries, which must be answered honestly, in writing, and under oath by the receiving party ("under penalty of perjury," in Georgia). Slip-and-Fall Interrogatories To Defendant The primary concern in a slip-and-fall claim is generally if the premises owner — or the person or organization responsible for overseeing the premises — did not make sensible efforts to avoid the plaintiff's mishap. The complainant must…
