Chicago Personal Injury Attorney
Elevator Accident Lawyer
The Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries reports around 21 deaths per year and a total of 207 deaths from elevator and escalator accidents in 1992-2001. Of these deaths, 146 of them work on or near an escalator and 61 of the deaths were passengers.
At the law offices of Chicago personal injury attorney John Budin we provide aggressive legal representation to anyone who has suffered a personal injury in an elevator or escalator accident. The manufacturer of the elevator can be found liable if a defect is discovered in the manufacturing or construction of the elevator/escalator or its components. The following conditions would hold the manufacturers of the elevator liable during a personal injury lawsuit:
- A flaw in the product was created
- Failing to test or inspect the elevator before going on the market
- Failing to realize that an elevator could be dangerous
- Failing to adequately warn of the risks associated with an elevator
The elevator service and maintenance companies may also be found liable for a faulty elevator if proper maintenance was not performed to the elevator on a routine schedule.
