Airline & Airport Worker Injury Claims

Let Our Santa Ana Workers’ Comp Attorney

Employees in the airline industry are exposed to a wide range of dangers on the job. When airline workers suffer injuries, they are entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Although most California airline and airport employees are members of labor unions, insurance companies may not treat these workers fairly after a workplace injury.

At Ufkes & Bright, our Santa Ana workers’ comp lawyers understand how stressful and confusing it can be to deal with workers’ compensation issues as you recover from injury. Due to the complexities of the claims process, having experienced and skilled legal representation on your side can ensure you obtain the benefits you deserve.

The Dangers of the Airline Industry

According to the Flight Safety Foundation, the airline industry is among the most dangerous in the country. Long hours, irregular schedule, handling heavy luggage, and operating complicate machinery can pose health and safety hazards that airline and airport staff face on a day-to-day basis. From the grounds crew and gate agents to pilots and flight attendants, there are a variety of positions in the airline industry, which means injuries can range from chronic pain to catastrophic injuries.

Our firm handles the following types of airline employee injury claims:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Cargo loading injuries
  • Bagging handling injuries
  • Mechanic injuries
  • Fueling and service accidents
  • Injuries to flight crews
  • Airport vehicle accidents

If you have been injured and wish to recover benefits, you need to prove how your injury occurred. While you do not need to demonstrate how your employer was negligent, you must establish that the injury occurred while performing work duties.
