Los Angeles Airline and Airport Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Understand your legal options for recovering benefits.

Long hours, irregular schedules, and handling heavy luggage are just a fraction of the many health and safety threats airline and airport workers face on a daily basis. According to the Flight Safety Foundation, the airline industry is among the most hazardous in the nation, which is why it’s important for an employee to understand their legal options for recovering benefits if they are injured at work.

At Levin & Nalbandyan, LLP, our Los Angeles workers’ comp lawyers are backed by decades of combined experience, and can provide you with the strong and effective representation you need and deserve. Our firm can assist you throughout the legal process, whether it’s completing complex paperwork or appealing an unfavorable decision. Our Los Angeles airline and airport workers’ compensation lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you don’t have to pay us unless and until we win. Our workers’ compensation lawyers also offer speaking services in Spanish, free initial consultations, and honest case evaluations.


Airline and airport employees can be injured anywhere at work, including on the tarmac, in the airplane, inside of a terminal, or even from behind a desk. Below are a few of the most common reasons for injuries on the ground or in the sky:

  • Being struck by a vehicle
  • Cleaning/servicing the plane
  • Falling off moving tarmac stairs
  • Handling heavy or large baggage
  • In-flight turbulence
  • Mechanical errors
  • Moving or lifting disabled passengers
  • Repetitive motions
  • Slippery pavements

Since there are so many varying positions in the airline industry, injuries can range from chronic back pain and hypertension to musculoskeletal disorders and traumatic brain injuries. If you’re injured and want to recover workers’ comp benefits, you must prove how your injury happened. While you do not need to show that your employer was negligent, you need to prove the injury was work-related. You are entitled to benefits for any lost time injury that keeps you away from work for at least 3 days. Most claims related to smaller injuries tend to go through smoothly, but more severe injuries can result in a lengthy and more complex legal battle. An attorney in Los Angeles could guide you through any airline and airport workers’ compensation claim.
