Millions of people use elevators, escalators and conveyors every day in skyscrapers, airports, hotels, sporting facilities, malls, apartment buildings and while visiting many other locations.

Escalator/Elevator Injuries

When clothing, shoes, hands, feet, or skin is caught in moving escalator parts the results include bruises, cuts, crush injuries and even amputation. When limbs are caught in doors, conveyors or “pinch points” and serious injury occurs. When cables fail causing passengers to plummet to the bottom of an elevator shaft, death is certainly a possibility. Slip or trip and fall injuries are also common in escalators and elevators,due to improper maintenance causing misleveling.

If you are hurt in an elevator, conveyor or escalator accident due to the negligent actions of a manufacturer or property owner, we can help you hold them responsible for your medical bills, lost income, and future expenses for a potentially permanent physical disability as well as for emotional trauma and pain and suffering.
