Most people take for granted that elevators and escalators are safe devices and operate safely. However, sometimes these devices malfunction and/or are not adequately maintained and cause serious injury or death to people. The end result is devastating to anyone in anyway involved in one of these horrible accidents.
Under the law, you may have legal claims for your damages for the negligence caused by a 3rd party that negligently caused your injuries suffered in an elevator or escalator accident. Some common escalator and elevator injuries are caused by clothing or shoelaces being caught in the escalator’s moving staircase or the escalator door closing on a person’s object or even worse, the body. This can result in traumatic brain injuries, amputations, severe lacerations, asphyxiation, broken bones and death.
If this has happened to you or your family, you have the right to collect damages for your loss including but not limited to past, present and future medical bills, loss wages, disfigurement, loss of earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
