Detroit Elevator and Escalator Injury Lawyers

Elevators and escalators can conveniently move people from floor to floor and are especially helpful in tall buildings. However, when they do not function properly, these heavy machines can cause serious injury to those who ride them.

If you or someone you know has been hurt on an elevator or escalator, another party may be liable for the hazardous conditions that caused your accident.

Types of Accidents

Elevators and escalators are composed of many moving parts that must work in concert to safely transport people. When something goes wrong with the machinery, a passenger could be severely injured. Some common types of accidents involving elevators and escalators include:

  • Poorly maintained machinery
  • Improperly installed parts
  • Defective pulleys, belts, or other parts
  • Malfunctioning equipment
  • Broken elevator cables
  • Electrical problems

When an elevator or escalator fails to work properly or does not contain the proper safety features, the property owner, maintenance crew, machinery manufacturer, or other party may be liable for any accidents that occur. The injured passengers may suffer serious injuries that lead to substantial medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. Our Detroit premises liability lawyers understand how taxing these injuries can be for you and your family and we are committed to helping you to seek the injury compensation that you need.
