What Is A Malaga – Costa del Sol Airport Accident?

As we have already stated, airports are incredibly busy places. As well as planes taking off and landing, there are many other complicated processes going on, that if not implemented properly can cause accidents. Examples of this can include baggage handling, driving airport buggies, and boarding and disembarking planes. Airports have a duty of care towards people who use them, such as passengers, people dropping off or picking up others at the airport, employees and other key stakeholders such as contractors working on a building site at the airport. This means that they are legally obliged to take every reasonable health and safety precaution possible, to ensure that people who use their premises and services are not harmed due to avoidable accidents. This means that if their airport neglects their duty of care and this caused an avoidable accident, resulting in someone becoming injured or ill then the airport could be held liable for the harm caused and have to pay the injured party compensation.

If you have been injured or made ill at Malaga – Costa del Sol Airport because the airport neglected their duty of care towards you, you could be entitled to claim compensation. Whether you were a passenger, member of staff or had another reason to be at the airport, you could be entitled to claim. Call Legal Expert today, and if we can see that you have legitimate grounds to claim compensation, you will be provided with an excellent personal injury solicitor to represent your claim.

Airport Slip And Fall Accident Claims

One of the most common reasons why people make a personal injury claim against an airport or another business is because of slip, trip and fall accidents. This is because unfortunately, something as small as a spill on the floor which had not been cleaned up, or a nail sticking out of a floorboard can cause a slip, trip or fall accident. Although some slip and fall accidents only cause minor injuries, such as small cuts and bruises, other accidents can cause more serious injuries such as severe soft tissue injuries or broken bones. If you have been injured because of a slip, trip or fall accident at Malaga Airport that was not your fault, you could be entitled to make an airport slip and fall accident claim for compensation. Call Legal Expert to start an airport slip and fall accident claim today.

If you have been injured because of a staircase, lift, travelator or escalator accident at Malaga Airport, which was not your fault, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
