There are normally two issues that Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers consider when handling a slip and fall accident at Tallahassee International Airport. One is identifying the correct party or several parties. The second issue is one of notice, or whether the party who is responsible was aware of the defective condition, or should have been aware of it.
If an airport is owned and managed by a city, which is a government entity, there could be issues of immunity from liability. In slip and fall accidents, the basis of liability is negligence in the care, custody and control of real property or things attached to airport property.
