Here are some common questions you may have about the legal process moving forward:

What are the primary causes of elevator accidents?
Elevator mishaps typically stem from negligence, whether it be from the elevator’s designer/manufacturer or the property owner. In some instances, a negligent elevator technician could also be at fault. If our firm can demonstrate that the elevator or its components were negligently designed or manufactured, resulting in your accident, you likely have a valid product liability case.
Think about this: if we can establish that the property owner was aware or should have known about unsafe elevator conditions, failed to address them, and you sustained injuries and damages as a result, you may have grounds for a premises liability claim.

What steps should I take if I am involved in an elevator accident?
If involved in an elevator accident, your best bet is to document the incident if possible or have someone do it for you. You can photograph the accident scene and your injuries, gather contact information from witnesses, retain copies of all medical records and bills related to your injuries, and more. Many elevators are equipped with cameras that may have captured the accident.
