Elevator Accident Lawyers

Elevator malfunctions can cause serious injuries to passengers. This type of claim falls under premises liability law and can result in damages for those injured by the negligence of others or a defective machine.

Elevator Accident Injury? No Recovery, No Fee

Although elevator accidents occur more often than you'd think. According to Consumer Watch, "in the U.S. alone, there are an estimated 900,000 elevators, each serving an average of 20,000 people per year. Collectively, U.S. elevators make 18 billion passenger trips per year. The vast majority of these elevators are located within commercial, retail, or residential properties with an average rise of 40 feet (4 to 5 floors). Each elevator averages about 5 people per trip."

It's easy to forget, but elevators and escalators are powerful and could be deadly or cause severe injury to the pedestrians who use them. We take them for granted, but elevators and escalators are powerful machines.
