Causes of Elevator and Escalator Injuries

Our attorneys have obtained compensation for clients injured due to elevator and escalator malfunction caused by:

  • Jerking and stopping on escalators
  • Mis-leveling of elevators
  • Poor maintenance
  • Bad design
  • Defectively manufactured parts
  • Wet floors in elevators
  • Failure of safety devices

Some of these conditions result in slip-and-falls, while others may cause users to be caught in the mechanisms or stuck between floors. Clients have suffered crush injuries, broken bones, head injuries and other injury because of malfunctioning elevators and escalators.
