Newark International Airport (EWR) Injury Lawyer

Newark Liberty International Airport was originally Newark Metropolitan Airport and then was renamed again to Newark International Airport. It is the primary airport serving New Jersey and is located at 3 Brewster Road in Newark, New Jersey. The International Airport Association (IATA) code for Newark Liberty International Airport is EWR.

This airport is one of the busiest airports in the nation and regularly experiences pedestrian and vehicle congestion on a daily basis. Newark Liberty International Airport also has two other distinguishing features that give it a poor ranking among air travelers: it comes last in customer satisfaction and ranks as the worst airport for on-time flights.

Over 40,000 passengers were polled about accessibility, baggage claims, food, retail, terminal facilities, check-in and beverages. The airport scored 701 points on a 1,000 point scale and finished 34 points behind O’Hare International and Los Angeles International (who tied for second worst place in the survey).

In a hectic, always moving flow of travelers, slip and fall accidents will often happen. Employees, or their contractors, may frequently neglect to notice spills made by those entering/exiting the airport. Or they may be negligent in warning patrons of hazardous conditions that could cause someone to slip, trip and fall. Newark Airport’s employees and contractors have a duty to provide a safe environment for airport patrons.

It is important to speak to an experienced airport slip and fall attorney about your injuries and to also determine if the airport is operated/managed by a city or a government entity, as there may be issues of immunity from liability. In slip and fall accidents, liability is based on negligence in the care, custody or control of real property or things affixed to airport property.

If you have slipped and fallen at the Newark Liberty International Airport, and sustained serious injuries, you may be able to seek compensation from the court for your injuries, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Possible future medical costs
  • Current medical costs

Causes of slips and fall injuries at airports:

  • Unmarked hazards
  • Defective flooring
  • Poor lighting
  • Defective/missing handrails
  • Terminal construction not properly marked
  • Wet/slippery floors
  • Snow clogged entrances, driveways or parking lots
  • Torn carpets/wet entrance mats
  • Torn carpets/wet entrance mats to airplanes
  • Cracked tiles
  • Uneven floors
  • Defective stairs
  • Uneven jet bridge flooring
  • Loose carpets/flooring
  • Slippery stairs
  • Malfunctioning escalator
  • Malfunctioning elevator
  • Struck by electric cart

Common injuries due to slip and falls:

  • Spinal injuries
  • Broken limbs
  • Head trauma
  • Hip fractures
  • Back injuries

While slip and fall accidents are dangerous and can cause serious injuries, these are not the only hazards present at the Newark Liberty International Airport. Given the amount of daily vehicle traffic the airport experiences, there are often accidents involving motorists, including buses and Lyft or Uber drivers. Even though a collision between a Lyft or Uber driver and another vehicle is similar to two private vehicles crashing, there are differences. The major difference is that you may be able to file a claim against Lyft or Uber, the driver’s personal insurance policy, or another at-fault driver’s insurance coverage.

If you have been involved in a slip and fall accident, or a Lyft or Uber-related accident at Newark Liberty International Airport, the best person to help guide you through your claim and to determine the facts of your case is an experienced personal injury attorney at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm who can answer your questions and properly advise you. The Todd J. Leonard Law Firm’s Headquarters are located at 3010 Route 10 West in Denville, New Jersey.
