Elevator and Escalator Injuries

In a city like Atlanta with many tall buildings, both elevators and escalators are extremely common. While they provide us with truly convenient apparatus' for going up and down in buildings, they can also present significant risks. If a property owner fails to properly maintain either, very serious injuries can occur.

Elevator and escalator accidents result in approximately 30 deaths per year. While accidents leading to death are somewhat rare, a 2006 report by the Center for Construction Research and Training showed that approximately 17,000 serious injuries are caused each year. This is no small figure.

It's important that building owners properly maintain both elevators and escalators. A failure to do so can result in terrible falls, slips and in some cases, even more catastrophic injuries. If you've been injured by someone's negligent maintenance of either an elevator or escalator it is important to retain an elevator accident attorney that understands the nuances of these sorts of claims. Here at the Thomas Law Firm we've handled a variety of cases stemming from these sorts of injuries. Don't hesitate to give us a call!
