Stevens Point Elevator and Escalator Injury Lawyers

Property owners have a legal obligation to ensure that there are no hazards present which are likely to cause harm to guests. When they fail to address known dangers, or to provide adequate warnings, they may be found to be legally liable for injuries sustained by guests. This extends to the maintenance and monitoring of elevators and escalators in multi-story buildings. Though these machines may appear to be relatively harmless, when they are not appropriately kept they can cause potentially life-threatening injuries.

If you have suffered an injury in an elevator or escalator accident that would have been reasonably foreseeable had a property owner upheld their responsibility, we can help. You may be able to recover financial compensation for medical bills and other damages. Contact the Stevens Point elevator injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 today.

Dangers Associated with Elevators or Escalators

There are many different injuries that one might suffer if he or she is involved in an elevator or escalator accident. Both kinds of incidents may result in falls from elevation, but beyond this there are a variety of other potential dangers associated with such accidents. These may include:

  • The risk of electric shock or electrocution
  • Becoming caught in an elevator door or between escalator stairs
  • Falling through a missing escalator step
  • Being injured when an elevator’s support cables break, resulting in a fall
  • Trip and falls when elevators do not stop level with the floor outside
