Airline & Airport Employees

San Diego Airline & Airport Employees Lawyer

Were You Injured at Your Airport Job in Southern California?

Airline industry workers face a variety of dangerous situations on a daily basis. Airport employees are at risk of being injured on the job, whether it’s:

  • In the air
  • On the tarmac
  • Inside a terminal

Airline and airport injuries vary widely based on the position of the worker, but some common causes include:

  • Falling off moving tarmac stairs
  • In-air turbulence
  • Repetitive motions
  • Slippery pavement
  • Being struck by a vehicle
  • Handling heavy luggage

After suffering an accident, the process of filing a workers' compensation claim along with everything else going on can be both physically and emotionally draining. The skilled workers’ compensation lawyer at Leigh Law Firm in San Diego can help.

We understand the stress that comes along with these accidents, which is why we can investigate your case and fight for the compensation you deserve.

What Are Common Airport Ground Crew Injuries?

Ground crew and ramp agents are responsible for ensuring that baggage, freight and provisions are loaded and unloaded properly, as well as:

  • Directing
  • Flagging
  • Towing aircraft on the runways

With all of this activity, there are several types of injuries that are particularly common for ground crew:

  • Repetitive stress injuries from lifting and carrying
  • Slip and fall accidents from loose cables or obstructions on the runway and/or ramp
  • Hearing loss due to excessive noise from planes and other equipment on the tarmac
  • Other serious accidents involving being struck or crushed by moving objects

What Are Common Flight Attendant Injuries?

Flight attendants are on their feet constantly throughout flights, ensuring that passengers are properly cared for and receive everything they need. Because stewards and stewardesses are typically moving about during flight, they can sustain certain injuries that normal passengers may not:

  • Muscle sprains or bruises from in-flight turbulence; more serious turbulence can even lead to concussions or lacerations
  • Repetitive stress injuries from helping passengers stow and retrieve baggage from overhead compartments
  • Other emotional or psychological disorders that result from dealing with unruly or aggressive passengers on a regular basis
