Airline & Airport Employee Injury Claims
Oakland Workers’ Compensation Attorneys – 888.740.6434
Even though most California airline and airport employees are members of
labor unions, there is nothing to guarantee that insurers will treat these
employees fairly after an on-the-job injury, or that the labor union will
have the power to back their claims. If you are in such a situation and
the odds are feeling stacked against you, reset the balance by contacting
Pacific Workers’ Compensation Law Center. Our Oakland workers’
comp lawyers are continually striving to bring excellent, compassionate,
and comprehensive representation to the injured workers who deserve to
have their rights respected and their claims taken seriously.

Airport Employees Deserve Safe Work Conditions
An airport can be a hectic place to work due to all of the people rushing
about and some of the intricate machinery that needs to be used by certain
employees. The busy atmosphere is not to be mistaken as an excuse to let
safety regulations and accident prevention protocols to slip through the
cracks. If you work in an airport – as a baggage claim attendant,
a boarding gate clerk, or any other position – your employer always
has the duty to ensure that your health and care are not put in any unreasonable
danger. This is the same duty of care your employer already owes all the
people visiting the airport.
Accidents and injuries often reported in airport injury claims include:
Representation for Airline Employees Hurt Inflight
At our Oakland workers’ compensation law firm, we understand that
not every hazard is on the ground and in the airport. Airline employees
that physically board and work upon airplanes, such as flight attendants
and pilots, could potentially face even greater danger during their shifts
due to employer negligence and commonplace hazards, like strong turbulence.
Insurers may reject a workers’ compensation claim filed by an airline
employee, citing that the unpredictable nature of flying is an acceptable risk.
In a workers’ compensation claim, liability and risk are not factors
in whether or not the employee can collect benefits or coverage. No matter
how or why you were hurt while employed for an airline or while working
on an airplane, you should be given fair compensation. This is where our
years of legal experience can come into play, backing your claims and
giving you the power to fight for the compensation you deserve.
Free Consultations & Contingency Fees Mean No Payments from Your Pocket
Suffering an injury while performing your duties as an airline or airport
employee can set you back financially. Stressing about where you will
get the money to hire an attorney is the last thing you need. In order
to help you
deal with your workplace injury and find peace of mind again, we proudly offer contingency fee agreements
to our clients. We will only expect you to pay for our attorney fees if
we reach a positive outcome for your claim and you collect compensation,
either through a settlement, jury verdict, or awarded judgement. We also
only get paid a percentage of your winnings, so you do not pay upfront
or out-of-pocket at any point.
