Elevator Malfunctions

An Everyday Device Can Cause Unexpected Injury

Elevators are so commonplace in so many aspects of our lives today that we rarely give riding them a second thought. Elevators are ubiquitous, and can be found everywhere from shopping centers, hospitals, apartment complexes, office buildings, parking structures and many other types of buildings. But the fact that elevators are common doesn't mean they're always safe; particularly when inadequate maintenance or faulty design or manufacturing leaves them vulnerable to malfunction. When an elevator malfunctions, it's not only shocking; there's also a real potential for serious injury or even death. If you or a loved one has been in an elevator accident, having an experienced lawyer working on your behalf can help you to get the maximum compensation possible to help pay for your medical bills, lost wages and other expenses.

Elevators Can Be A Frightening Place

There's no button for "Hospital" in an elevator. But sometimes that's where people end up after riding in one, through no fault of their own. When you step on an elevator, you do so with a reasonable expectation that the ride will be brief and unremarkable. Unfortunately, that's not always what happens.

Examples of elevator malfunctions can include elevators that:

  • Stop unexpectedly between floors
  • Plummet to the ground
  • Race upward
  • Have doors that won't close or open
  • Bounce, lurch or make other unexpected moves

If you've been injured from being trapped in an elevator or being pinned, crushed or otherwise injured from an elevator making a sudden unexpected move, we understand that your bills for physical and psychological trauma could be considerable. You shouldn't have to pay for that betrayal of trust.
