Elevator & Escalator Accidents

Contact a St. Louis Premises Liability Attorney

For many people in St. Louis, elevators and escalators are a fact of life, something that they use on an everyday basis. Most people assume that elevators and escalators will not cause them harm, but the truth of the matter is that these devices are responsible for countless injuries in the United States every year. Often, certified inspections are not done in a timely manner, worn or broken equipment is not repaired or faulty or defective components are not fixed, and in situations like this injury and even fatality can occur.

Elevator Accidents

Injuries are commonly sustained on elevators when they:

  • Get stuck
  • Plummet
  • Suddenly stop
  • Speed up suddenly
  • Stop between floors

Escalator Accidents

Injuries are caused on escalators or moving walkways when they:

  • Stop suddenly
  • Have wet surfaces that cause a slip and fall accident
  • Have metal teeth that have become loose and so hook onto fingers, toes, and clothing

Improper installation, inspection and maintenance of these devices constitutes negligence, and if you have been injured in an elevator or escalator accident then you may be entitled to monetary compensation from the parties responsible by filing a premises liability claim.
