Filing a Lawsuit Against an Airport, Airport Shuttle Driver, or Shuttle Company
When filing a lawsuit against an airport, airport shuttle driver or shuttle company for personal injury it is important to note that you will more than likely be suing them in a case of negligence. Any claim of negligence requires that you can prove the following components:

  • Duty: The plaintiff (injured or damaged party) must be able to show that the defendant (shuttle passenger) owed a legal duty to the plaintiff under the particular circumstances of the case.
  • Breach: The plaintiff must be able to show that the defendant breached said legal duty through specific actions or failure to act appropriately
  • Causation: The plaintiff must be able to show that the defendant’s actions or lack thereof caused the plaintiff’s injuries
  • Damages: The plaintiff must be able to show that they endured some specific damages. This can usually be shown through the presentation of medical records, a loss of wages, or a loss of potential income.

To prove a successful claim of negligence it is also essential that you collect adequate evidence for your case. This evidence can include things like photography, video footage, eyewitness testimonies, and police reports. It is vital that you collect this evidence as soon as possible, as there is no guarantee that this evidence will still be around long after the incident.

If your shuttle accident was caused by a defective product, such as a flawed component in a shuttle or van, a lawsuit could be filed against the manufacturing company responsible for the flaw. With every defective product lawsuit, it is important that you can discern where the flaw occurred during the product’s chain of production, as a lawsuit would be filed against the company directly responsible for the defect. Bulleted below are some of the critical areas where a defect is likely to occur in the chain of production:

  • Design Defects: These are the defects that can occur before the product is sent to the assembly line. The defects that occur in this stage of production are faults that make the product inherently dangerous. In most cases, these defects can lead to full-scale product recalls, and the company which organized the design of the product could be held liable for the damages.
  • Manufacturing Defects: These defects typically occur on the assembly line of the product. They can range from minor mistakes along the manufacturing chain to reoccurring mistakes that can result in wide-spread recalls. In these instances, the manufacturing company could be deemed responsible for the damages.
  • Marketing Defects: These defects occur during the marketing of a specific product. These defects include things like improper labeling, insufficient instructions, or inadequate safety warnings.

Regardless of how your airport shuttle accident occurred, these accidents can cause severe damages that can be incredibly difficult to recover from fully. For this reason, victims should seek full compensation for their damages. However, when pursuing a lawsuit, it is in your best interest to seek assistance from an expert attorney who has experience in personal injury claims regarding airport shuttle accidents.

Airport Shuttle Accidents
LAX Airport shuttle services like Super Shuttle, Roadrunner, DASH, FlyAway, Prime, Go Fly, A1, and Karmel Shuttle are all responsible for the safety and security of their passengers. These shuttle services and other hotel and car rental shuttles, provide a convenient form of transportation to airports. When a passenger is injured as a result of the negligence of the shuttle bus driver or company, that injured passenger has every right to file a lawsuit against the party responsible for their damages. Some common causes of airport shuttle collisions and accidents include the following:

  • Speeding
