If you have been injured in an airplane due to luggage falling from an overhead bin, you may be entitled to compensation for your harm. Airlines have a duty to ensure passengers are safe from preventable injuries. At the Law Offices of Robert Dixon, our airline accident attorneys are well versed in this area of law and can put our knowledge to use in your case. We can scrutinize the facts of your case, seek to establish fault, and zealously pursue full and fair compensation on your behalf.
Airlines are ‘common carriers,’ which means that their primary business is to transport people from one place to another for compensation. Other examples of common carriers include commercial buses, boats, and trains. Common carriers have a heightened legal responsibility and duty of care to their passengers. This duty of care includes making sure that passengers are protected from harm at every stage of the flight.
