Accidents at work happen every day. If you or a loved one works on or near an elevator and have been injured, you may need an experienced personal injury lawyer to guide you through this process. Elevator claims can sometimes be complicated as to who is at fault. Did the manufacturer make a faulty product? Was it designed incorrectly? Was there mistakes in the maintenance of the elevator? Was the elevator no longer up to code? These questions and many others will need to be answered.
Many times when an elevator injury takes place, it is the fault of the manufacturer or the service vendors. The elevator could have defective parts or was improperly serviced. If you were working on a job near a elevator or happened to be in the wrong place at the time and have found yourself injured as a result of a faulty or malfunctioning elevator give our Boston elevator injury lawyers a call today to see how we can help.
