Elevator Accidents Can Have Tragic Consequences – Call an Experienced New York Personal Injury Attorney about Every New Yorker’s Nightmare: An Elevator Accident
When you get on an elevator, the last thing you expect is a tragic accident. In fact, elevators are so much a part of our daily lives in New York City that we barely even think about them. Yet when something goes wrong, it can result in a catastrophe. Elevator accidents can cause serious injuries to the head, neck, spine, and limbs, and in some cases, these accidents can even be fatal. Elevator accidents can have a number of different causes, including:
- The elevator gets stuck
- The elevator floor is not level with the building floor
- The elevator opens onto an empty shaft
- Sudden changes in speed
- The hoist cables are not properly maintained
- The elevator falls down the shaft
- The elevator is trapped in the shaft for a long period of time
- Safety devices are not properly maintained
- Sudden jerks cause passengers to fall
- Faulty wiring causes an electrical fire
- And more
No matter what specifically caused an elevator accident, property owners or managers and elevator maintenance companies may be responsible for the maintenance and safety of all elevators in a building. If you or your loved one has been injured in an elevator accident, you may be eligible for financial compensation and pain and suffering damages under premises liability law.
