New York Airport Slip and Fall Lawyers

New York’s airports are busy crowded places.  The airports have many visitors daily, but the operators of the buildings within the airport still have the duty to properly maintain the area and keep it safe.  Sometimes, that doesn’t happen.

Some airport facilities such as the jet bridge that connects the airport terminal to an aircraft for boarding or disembarking passengers can present several tripping hazards.  The floor of a jet bridge is normally uneven and they generally have tracks on the sides of the walkway near the walls.  We have seen situations where passengers trip on the flooring or fall due to uneven flooring in the jet bridge and/or the presence of the tracks on the sides of the jet bridge.

If you tripped and fell or slipped and fell at an airport (or anywhere else in New York) and suffered injuries call Hecht & Hecht, LLP at (212) 226-2400.  We have extensive experience handling all types of slip/trip and fall cases in New York.
