Airport Premises Liability Claims
Leading Philadelphia Premises Liability Attorneys
Whether it is for business, vacation, visiting a family member, going on spring break, or returning college, many people rely on air travel to get them where they have to go. Each day, thousands of travelers pass in and out of airports, so it is not surprising that accidents can, and will, happen to some of those passengers.

Causes & Consequences of Airport Injuries
Premises liability accidents while at an airport, boarding an airplane, or while in flight are not that uncommon, and they often result in traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, nerve injuries, paraplegia, quadriplegia, or even death. The experienced Philadelphia premises liability attorneys of The Beasley Firm have successfully represented individuals who have been injured or killed while in an airport terminal, boarding a plane, or in an airplane.
Injuries in an airport or on an airplane can be caused by:
- Slip and fall in restaurants, bathrooms, bars, or food courts
- Fall or injury on a defective escalator
- Fall or injury on a moving sidewalk
- Slip and fall on the tarmac
- Negligent Sky Caps
- Luggage retrieval areas or conveyor belts
- Slip and fall on a boarding ramp
- Inadequately secured items in overhead bins
- Failure to warn about turbulence
- Trip and fall due to uneven ramp that connects to an airplane
- Injuries from electric carts
- Injuries from airport Jitneys
- Injuries from an airport shuttle, bus, or 15 passenger van
- Physical assaults or sexual assaults in secluded areas such as bathrooms, restrooms, and parking garages due to inadequate security.
It is generally clear that the airline is responsible for actions that occur on its own planes. However, the accidents that occur in the airport itself, on the tarmac or airport areas, require careful investigation by knowledgeable Philadelphia premises liability lawyers.
History of Success in Airport Aviation Litigation
While most young boys grow up playing with toy airplanes, Jim Beasley, Jr. did not. Jim grew up playing with real airplanes. When he was 16 years old, not only did he have a license to drive a car, he was also able to fly planes by himself. His passion has led him to perform with "The Horsemen," an aggressive and exciting formation aerobatic act, in air shows throughout America and England as the lead pilot.
He is a commercially-rated pilot with over 25 years of flight time, and is one of the select 12 civilians permitted to fly with the United States Air Force. He has thousands of hours flying high performance World War II fighter aircraft, particularly with his P-51 Mustang.
Jim's passion and history with airplanes and airports makes him a leader in the field of aviation and airport negligence. He has the real-life experience and legal knowledge that many other attorneys do not have. His aviation law expertise played a major part in obtaining the ONLY successful lawsuit for victims of the September 11 attacks.
For the past 60 years, the legendary Beasley Firm has been a national leader in the areas of airport law, personal injuries, catastrophic injuries, and wrongful death. The firm has been successful in winning awards for our clients totaling well over $2 billion dollars. More importantly however, our cases and investigations have changed our clients' lives for the better-providing them with medical care, money for lost wages, and financial security for themselves and their families.
