While elevator and escalator accidents are somewhat rare, the injuries that they cause can be catastrophic in nature. Whether you are an electrician or a mere patron of a store that was injured in an elevator or escalator, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Statistically, those individuals that work on or near elevators are the most at risk for an elevator accident. Elevator installers, repairers, and engineers account for the majority of elevator-related accidents and fatalities.
On the other hand, everyday individuals such as the residents of apartment buildings or shoppers in malls can also become the victims of an elevator or escalator accident, especially if the elevator or escalator has not been properly serviced.
The owners of the buildings where these elevators and escalators are places are responsible for their upkeep. Our Fort Lauderdale accident lawyers can assist any client in holding building managers, building owners, and elevator companies responsible for any negligence that causes the injury of another.
