Elevator and Escalator Accidents

Elevators and escalators, though seemingly harmless and regularly used, can sometimes cause accidents and injuries. When escalators and elevators are not installed correctly, have not undergone inspection, or are old and improperly maintained, the probability of injury is greatly increased. Children frequently sustain elevator injuries when the doors close on a part of the body. Many other elevator accidents happen when the elevator collapses and drops or gets jammed, and some occur when individuals fall down elevator shafts. While most escalator injuries involve slip & falls, some accidents are caused when shoes, clothes, hands, shoelaces and/or feet get caught in the moving parts of an escalator.

Massachusetts elevator and escalator accidents can occur in a wide range of settings. Shopping malls, college campuses, subway stations, train/bus stations and hotels are common examples of locations where these types of accidents can occur. Following an elevator / escalator accident, victims often face financial hardships as a result of their injuries. In order to receive compensation, it is often in the best interests of victims to file a MA Elevator/Escalator Accident lawsuit.

If you have suffered an injury from an elevator or escalator, the owner or manager of the premises might be legally responsible. Given the complexity of these types of cases, it is wise to contact an experienced premises liability attorney who can assess your claim and file a MA Premises Liability Lawsuit.
