Elevator and Escalator Accidents
We all consider elevators and escalators to be a simple part of everyday life. The sad truth of the matter, however, is that accidents occur on both. The owner(s) of any given premises have a duty to provide a safe environment, and if their negligence or willful intent led to personal injury, they are legally liable for the damages. If you are a loved one has been injured on an elevator or escalator, you may be eligible for compensation. This compensation can help pay for your medical treatment, ongoing care, reimburse for lost wages, as well as for your claim for pain and suffering.

If the owner has not performed regular safety checks, has failed to hire adequate safety guards, or has let the equipment fall into disrepair to scrimp on maintenance costs, they may be at fault for the injuries you’ve sustained.
