Common airport traffic accidents

As the holidays approach, individuals and their families will likely be flying across the country to visit relatives. With the increase in airplane travel, there will likely be an increase in airport traffic car accidents.

Traffic airport car accidents are classified as those accidents that occur in and around airports. They are common for a number of reasons.

One, because many drivers are distracted either looking for parking spots or passengers, they are more likely to hit other cars or pedestrians. Also, because of the high frequency of loading and unloading, there is a greater amount of stop-and-go traffic, which inevitably leads to a greater number of accidents.

The basics of the affirmative defense

In personal injury cases, defendants will sometimes employ an affirmative defense. Such a defense does not deny that the evidence against the defendant is untrue. However, it claims that the plaintiff is also culpable.

If the defendant can prove that the plaintiff is culpable, then the defendant may not be liable for all or part of the damages. Two common examples of affirmative defense include comparative negligence and assumption of risk.
