Personal Injuries Caused by Defective Elevator Doors
A frequent cause of elevator injuries is malfunctioning doors. A number of circumstances can arise, all putting you at risk for serious and catastrophic injury:
- The elevator doors may close too rapidly, not allowing you enough time to get in or out of the elevator. In some situations, this can trap you between the outside door and an internal door or gate. It can also knock you down.
- The elevator doors may open when they are not supposed to. External doors can open when the elevator is not there, exposing you to the risk of falling into the elevator shaft. The door may open between floors, also putting you at risk of injury.
- The elevator doors may fail to open at all, trapping you inside an elevator
The injuries sustained in an elevator accident can be severe. We will help you recover for losses caused by any injuries, including sprains or strains, fractures, spinal cord or head trauma, and even the accidental death of a loved one.
Our lawyers take all cases involving elevator injuries on a contingency basis. You will only pay attorney fees if we recover compensation for your injuries.
