Newcastle Airport Accidents at Work
There are many different job roles within an airport. While most workers return from their shift without experiencing an injury, there is always the possibility to be hurt while at work – with different job roles being more likely to be at risk than others. Job roles within an airport include:
• Airport Planner
• Cabin Crew
• Passenger Service Agent
• Baggage Handler
• Restaurant Worker
• Shop Assistant
• Air Traffic Controller
Your employer has a duty of care to ensure your safety no matter your job role. If you have been injured due to your employer failing to fulfil this duty of care, such as a failure to follow health and safety regulations, then you may be able to claim compensation in response. Jefferies Solicitors can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
Other Types of Accidents
Newcastle Airport Slips, Trips and Falls
In an airport there are a lot of obstacles and opportunities from which a slip, trip or fall injury could occur such as luggage dangerously placed in a walkway or liquid spills. If you have experienced a slip, trip or fall injury while at an airport that was not your fault then you may be able to claim compensation.
Luggage, Baggage Carousel or Trolley Injuries
There is also the possibility of being injured by luggage falling from the baggage carousel or the baggage trolley. You could also experience injury by colliding with a moving baggage trolley, the injuries resulting from such an accident could even be quite severe. If you have suffered an injury due to one of these scenarios and the accident was not your fault, then you may be owed compensation.
If you are injured due to colliding with or experiencing a crash while inside a shuttlebus, you deserve compensation. This type of accident could possibly be quite serious and traumatic due to the fact that a vehicle is involved. Therefore, you deserve compensation to help you heal from your injuries and get help for any trauma you might have experienced.
Escalator and Lift Accidents
While lift and travellator accidents are fairly uncommon because both sets of machinery usually have regular maintenance checks, injury can still occur while using a lift or a travellator. The injuries resulting from a lift or a travellator could be quite serious. If you have experienced an injury from a lift or travellator accident then you could receive some compensation in response to your injuries.
Food Health and Safety and Allergic Reactions at Newcastle Airport
If food is not properly stored, cooked or prepared this can cause food poisoning if eaten. While most cases of food poisoning are resolved by themselves within a few years, occasionally a case will last for a longer period if the food poisoning is more severe. If you have experienced food poisoning due to eating food purchased at an airport, then you could be entitled to compensation.
All restaurants should be able to provide their customers with the correct ingredient and preparation information regarding any ingredients which might prompt an allergic reaction. If you purchase pre-packaged food from a vendor, the packaging should also contain a list of ingredients and any warnings about a possible allergic reaction due to preparation, such as chocolate wrappers that state that the chocolate bar ‘might contain nuts.’ If you suffer an allergic reaction due to incorrectly packaged food or negligence on the part of a restaurant, then you may be able to claim compensation. Depending upon the exact place where you bought your food, the case may be against a restaurant chain or specific vendor rather than the airport.
If you have suffered food poisoning or an allergic reaction due to eating at an airport, you should keep any receipts relating to your food purchases as evidence. Furthermore, you should seek medical attention to address your issues as soon as you realise you are becoming ill, for your own safety.
How Much Can I Claim if I’ve Been Injured at Newcastle Airport?
The amount of compensation you may be able to claim will firstly depend on the nature and severity of your injury. Our compensation calculator will give you an indication of how much you might be entitled to.
However, financial losses that you might have experienced due to your injury or illness will also be taken into account when calculating compensation. For example, if you have taken time off work or are unable to return to work or if you have had to pay travel costs as a result of your injury, you may be able to recover these costs.
