Elevator and Escalator Accidents

As you step onto an elevator or escalator, you rarely pause to worry that an accident will occur.

Investigating Elevator and Escalator Accidents That Should Have Been Prevented

Elevators and escalators are strictly regulated by city and state officials. There are detailed codes that owners must abide by to run the machinery. Owners must have elevators and escalators inspected by designated inspectors on a regular basis. Failure to do so can result in disrepair and serious risk to passengers.

Our lawyers conduct a thorough investigation of the accident. This includes reviewing all records of routine inspections, necessary maintenance and repairs. We have a detailed understanding of elevator regulations and codes. We will find any inconsistencies that may have contributed to the accident and hold the responsible parties accountable.
