With over 25 years of experience representing the injured in difficult personal injury cases, both in negotiations and at trial, and we have the knowledge you will need on your side if you hope to get results. These cases can be exceptionally difficult to resolve. There may be several liable parties, including the building owner, the maintenance company, the manufacturer or others. Determining what parties could be held accountable is the initial step in the process of filing a claim or lawsuit. The companies involved could try to deny responsibility, or claim that you in some way were responsible for the injuries.

Proving Liability in Escalator/Elevator Accidents

In order for your claim to have merit, it must be established that there was a known problem with the unit, such as earlier problems or failures that were not fully resolved. A unit that has suddenly failed may lead to the determination that the manufacturer was solely responsible. In some cases, the failure of a part or system that was supplied by another manufacturer may have been the underlying problem that led to the failure. Our firm is committed to pursuing the maximum possible for each person we represent; as the injuries can be extremely severe or catastrophic, there is a great need for full financial compensation to be paid to the victim.

Whether the property owner has failed to resolve a danger to visitors to the property, or a maintenance company has falsified their records with regard to actual maintenance, or a broken component is the reason the accident took place, factually, you need help from a law firm that knows how to resolve a complex injury claim.

Myths About Escalators

You Don't Have to Pay Close Attention While Riding an Escalator: It is important to remember that an escalator is a moving machine that weights six tons. It could be very dangerous if not used properly. Passengers should be especially careful as they step on and off an escalator.

When Escalators are at a Stand Still They Can Be Used Just Like Stairs: This is actually unsafe to do. The height of escalator stairs is different from normal stairs. This means that when escalators are used as stairs there is a higher risk of someone tripping or falling.
