Anyone who tells you otherwise does not know what they are talking about ! The major airports throughout the United States have special rules, unique protections and protocols that we will explore in future posts. Even a “simple” slip and fall case where a passenger is injured while trying to board an aircraft is subject to special rules. The local police are not even allowed on the tarmac to investigate.

For example, at Reagan National Airport (“DCA”) or Dulles International Airport (“IAD”) outside of Washington, D.C., only the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority (“MWAA”) are allowed on the “Air Operations Area” (“AOA”), as this ground is controlled by the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”). The MWAA police may then be investigating a co-worker who is also in the employment of Dulles or National Airport ! Many people may believe this to be a clear “conflict of interest” and unfair to the travelling public.

That is why it is so important to engage legal counsel experienced in these kinds of unique cases, investigate these incidents quickly and preserve the evidence before it is destroyed, lost or recorded over. If you or someone you know or care for has been injured as the result of an accident at an airport or due to an airline’s unsafe decisions, and there are questions about what laws apply and how to seek reimbursement for all harms and losses, e-mail or call us at ABRAMS LANDAU, Ltd.
