Hundreds of Millions Recovered For Our Clients
From shopping malls to stadiums to airports to corporate offices, elevators and escalators are used all over modern structures to provide convenience to visitors. Most people use escalators and elevators without giving them much thought at all—until a serious accident occurs. Escalator and elevator accidents can result in serious and catastrophic injuries.
Some of the most common causes of these accidents include:
- Lack of proper maintenance or repairs
- Defective design / manufacturing
- Inadequate lighting around slippery areas
- Sudden stops or shutdowns
- Elevator doors that close to quickly
- Defective regulators
- Loose metal teeth on an escalator

Determining Fault for Your Accident
Determining fault is a crucial component of any personal injury case.

Multiple parties may even share some liability in your accident.
For example, the following individuals/entities may be held liable:
- Building owners
- Managing agents
