Orlando International Airport Accidents serious, we can help
Orlando International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the country. That's why navigating around the airport can often be so difficult, even if you are a frequent flier. When accidents happen here, they typically lead to complicated injury claims. Many different companies operate in the airport, which can make determining who's responsible for the accident a challenge. You might be a visitor from another state or even another country.
That's why you need an Orlando attorney who knows the area and knows how to get results. That why you need attorney Richard Troutman. An Orlando-native and lifelong Florida resident, Richard Troutman has a well-earned reputation throughout Florida for being a no-nonsense, results-driven premises liability lawyer who will not rest until justice is served. For more than 30 years, attorney Troutman has been handling difficult cases involving people injured in airports and other public places.
Even if you have already returned home, we can still help you obtain the money you rightfully deserve to pay all the bills associated with your airport accident. Such expenses often include the cost of your medical care, changed travel plans, lost income as well as lost future income, depending on how much time you need to recovery from your injury. Having a local attorney who knows Orlando and has a strong track record of getting results can make a big difference.
How did your accident happen at Orlando International Airport?
Slip and fall accidents often occur in airports. Visitors who may be in a rush can get easily disoriented as they try to read signs and listen to PA announcements. They may not see an obstacle (a suitcase, spilled water, etc.) that causes a serious accident.
Other common airport accidents that often result in an injury include:
- Burn injuries (including hot liquids spilled on passengers)
- Motor vehicle accidents (including in airport parking lots or on the tramway connecting terminals)
- Escalator accidents
- Workplace injuries (including back injuries while lifting heavy suitcases)
Attorney Troutman is familiar with the Montreal Convention (also known as the Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for International Carriage by Air), which protects the rights of airline passengers if they are injured on an international flight or while getting on or off the airplane.
"What should I do if I was injured in an Orlando airport accident?"
First and foremost, make sure you receive medical care for your injuries. If you have already returned home, make an appointment with your doctor right away, even if your injury seems minor. You could have a serious, life-threatening injury and not even realize it.
If you're still at Orlando International Airport, we recommend taking the following steps:
- Take photographs of the hazard that resulted in your injury if applicable. Insurance companies might later dispute how your accident took place. If you have photographs or video of the source of your accident, your claim will be even stronger.
- Get the full names, addresses and phone numbers of anyone who witnesses your accident.
- Contact the police if your accident appears serious. Having a police report can often make a big difference when dealing with skeptical insurance companies.
