You can plan a trip perfectly and arrive at the airport fully prepared for your journey, but you can’t prepare for someone else’s negligence. If the airport, an employee, a business, or another party doesn’t do their part to take precautions, you can find yourself injured in an airport accident. Those injuries could derail not only your trip, but your life, saddling you with bills, income losses, and personal challenges.
Our Tallahassee personal injury lawyers are available right now to help you on your journey to compensation. We can handle common complications in airport cases, like identifying the liable party and defending you from blame for your injuries. We can handle whatever your case requires.

We Leave No Stone Unturned
Our Tallahassee personal injury lawyers are also investigators. We don’t just trust what insurance adjusters or liable parties say about what happened. Our team conducts our own research, preserving and utilizing evidence like:
- Security footage
- Witness statements
- Photos from the scene
- Your clothing from the accident
- Physical evidence and debris
- Expert reconstruction and analysis
- Medical records
- Police reports (if applicable)
We do not leave any stone unturned when it comes to possible damages. In addition to conducting a comprehensive investigation, we seek comprehensive recognition for losses. If that means pursuing more than one party with claims or lawsuits or going all the way to court, so be it.
We Tackle Victim-Blaming
Among the many variables that can crop up in Tallahassee airport accident cases is the possibility that the parties involved will resort to laying responsibility on you. This is particularly common in slip and falls, with excuses like you were rushing, you didn’t take your own precautions, you failed to tie your shoes after security, etc. However, any accident can devolve into a blame game.
Our lawyers don’t just pursue the correct party, we protect you from them. We have experience playing both offense and defense, fighting accusations while getting to the bottom of who was responsible.
Damages You Could Deserve for Your Florida Airport Accident Case
In addition to the legwork of your airport claim or suit, our attorneys help determine what types of damages are available and how they apply to personal injury cases like yours. You deserve compensation for:
- Past, current, and future medical treatment costs
- Ongoing therapies like physical therapy or mental health care
- Medications and equipment needed for recovery, mobility, and pain
- Lost income from all types of jobs and revenue sources
- Pain and suffering, reduced earning ability, and lost enjoyment of life
These damages are matched with your injuries. Say you tripped over uneven terminal flooring and suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI). We don’t just seek an average amount for hospitalization, rehab, and pain. TBIs can cost significantly more than other injuries according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Rehabilitation and pain depend on the unique TBI symptoms you experience. We therefore analyze these variables to arrive at a targeted compensation amount.
Airport Accident Scenarios You Can Bring to Our Tallahassee Lawyers
Before you dismiss your situation as not having grounds, verify with our airport injury attorneys. We can cast a more experienced eye over your case, spotting negligence you might not see. The following is a sampling of the types of incidents that can warrant legal action:
You may have suffered your injuries on the plane itself. Safety issues, lack of directions, plane malfunctions, and even the actions of other passengers can cause injury. Airplane accidents are a unique area of law, so make sure you consult lawyers with experience like ours.
Slip and Falls
People and luggage often clutter walking areas in airports, but some tripping hazards are preventable. If you fell and hurt yourself at a Tallahassee airport, our slip and fall accident lawyers can investigate if the cause was:
- Lack of signage or lighting
- Puddles, spills, or leaks
- Debris left on walkways
- Obstructions or obstacles
- Unattended equipment
- Uneven flooring
- Cords that weren’t secured
Liable parties include the airport itself, airlines and their employees, businesses within the airport, or even other passengers.
Escalators, elevators, moving sidewalks, baggage claim carousels, passenger carts—any of these could malfunction due to lack of care, manufacturing defects, or human error. If you were hurt by a piece of airport equipment, we can determine if a person, company, or manufacturer is liable. Whether filing a claim or suit for personal injury or a defective product, Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers will stand by you.
You could have suffered an injury while still in your vehicle. Car accidents on airport grounds, whether involving other visitors or airport employees, could deserve compensation. Transportation accidents can also include airport buses and shuttles, taxis, rideshares, pedestrians, and parking lots.
Some of these scenarios make it hard to determine who to hold liable—the airport, an airline, a business, a transportation company, or an individual. Any or even more than one of these can apply to your case, so let us investigate each option to take advantage of all compensation opportunities.
Retail and Restaurant Accidents
While these businesses are located in the airport, if you were hurt there, you may need to hold the store or restaurant responsible, not the airport itself. However, accidents involving airport businesses can get messy when the business and the airport start pointing fingers at each other. We can track down the correct party for you.
