New York Airport Escalator Injury Lawyers

Hurt on an Airport Escalator in New York?

In the Summer of 2017, two travelers were seriously injured in separate escalator accidents at New York’s JFK Airport and La Guardia Airport.

In one case, a portion of the escalator broke off and cut a large swath of skin off the traveler’s leg.  Airport maintenance employees quickly repaired the malfunctioning mechanics.  The cause of the accident remains unknown to the injured victim.

In the second case, a traveler received a long cut down the length of her leg as she came into contact with a sharp edge while riding down the escalator.  Another passenger on the escalator also sustained a similar injury.  The matter was reported to airport management and marked for investigation by New York airport escalator injury lawyers.
