Airport accidents

Over the course of two decades, Schwarz & Schwarz has fought for the rights of over a thousand airport workers across the United States who have been injured performing ramp, catering, customer service, mechanic and maintenance work.

Baggage Carts

We have successfully litigated matters involving multiple types of airport machinery and equipment manufacturers and distributors including: baggage cart; belt loader; K loaders; baggage tug; belt system; jetways as well as many other types of equipment utilized at airports. 

Our firm’s airport story started in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, two decades ago when several ramp and fleet service workers sustained amputations and crush injuries to their fingers and hands while hooking baggage carts to baggage tugs. We were able to identify ride through injuries, which resulted in substantial financial recoveries for ramp agents across the United States. More importantly, we were able to prevent additional injuries by showing how a simple metal block could prevent employee amputations.

Belt Loaders

Through our continues involvement and focus on airport workers safety, over the past
twenty years we have identified additional dangerous and unsafe airport equipment and machinery which places workers at an increased risk for injury. These discoveries have also led to substantial monetary recoveries for workers against the manufacturers and distributors of beltloaders, K loaders, belt systems, jet ways, baggage carts, ladders, and aircrafts as well as other types of equipment utilized at airports across the nation. Schwarz and Schwarz has extensive expertise in all areas of airport safety. We have used this knowledge to secure large verdicts and settlements on behalf of our airport clients and we have also been instrumental in improving safer beltloaders, jetways and other equipment in airports across the United States.


During the past two decades our firm has also litigated matters against 3rd party contractors and 3rd party vendors who perform a variety of airport and airline
services which have injured airport workers. In many instances these contractors and 3 rd party vendors have dangerously and recklessly operated commercial vehicles and trucks, improperly loaded and packed hazardous materials, carelessly provided cleaning and snow removal services, unsafely maintained and serviced fuel farms and the fueling of aircrafts as well as other, negligently performed jobsite services and activities. Airport safety has become part of our firm’s culture and protecting the
rights of airline workers has resulted in our firm working closely with labor and unions to best achieve the goal of jobsite safety.

As a result of our vast background in representing injured airport workers, we developed the nationally recognized Airline Safety System which has been instrumental in improving work site safety for airport workers all across our country.
