Escalator & Elevator Accident Causes:

  • The main cause of escalator and elevator malfunctions is poor maintenance.
  • Many public and private buildings, schools and shopping areas fail to keep up-to-date accurate maintenance records on their equipment.
  • Neglected maintenance of elevators and escalators can result in door malfunctions, abrupt stopping, mis-leveling, dangerous gaps, and falls any of which can cause serious personal injuries.
  • For Elevators:
    • Door Malfunction – This is where a person gets a body part or clothing trapped in the door as they try to stop it from closing.
    • Shaft Falls – When someone either falls down the shaft or the entire elevator free falls due to cable breakage or braking malfunction.

    5-star-rating Cohen and Juda has been handling my grand son’s personal injury case who unfortunately was in a vehicle accident (he was a pedestrian who was hit). A friend recommended these attorneys who have been nothing short of fantastic. They have kept my Son in the loop every step of the way, have been realistic in the assessment of the case and are moving quickly toward a resolution. While I wish we didn’t need their services to begin with, my grandson has incurred injuries which generated significant medical bills which need to be paid. Bottom line is they are doing a great job and we’re optimistic about the outcome of the case. They really know their stuff and care a lot about their clients.
