December 11, 2013 9:49 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

At the Carness Law Firm, we provide aggressive legal representation to anyone who has suffered a personal injury in an elevator or escalator accident. The owner and 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. At the Carness Law Firm, we work with the nation’s leading experts in elevator safety and technology to achieve outstanding results for our clients.
