I am sorry to hear about your accident. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident at LAX, it’s important that you speak with a personal injury attorney quickly after the accident in order to ensure that you receive a fair amount of compensation for your medical expenses and other damages.
Given the size of LAX, there are lots of places inside the facility and outside the facility to slip and fall. Most slips and falls at LAX occur inside the terminal. Terminals in airports must be maintained to give both travelers as well as employees a safe way to walk from one area to another. Some of the most common problems that can cause a slip and fall in an airport include wet floors, bad lighting, broken or loose handrails, poorly maintained floors, and trip hazards around elevators and escalators.
Falls cause millions of emergency room visits each year and thousands of deaths each year. Elderly people are particularly at risk of being seriously harmed in falls. Over 20,000 elderly individuals are killed each year due to falls and about two million seek medical attention because of falls. Falls can cause a number of injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, lacerations, and internal organ damage.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident in LAX, you should speak with an attorney. You may have a legal right to compensation, including for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
