Who Is Liable for Escalator Accidents?
Liability depends of the cause of the escalator accident. If the escalator's design was dangerous, there was a flaw in the manufacturing process or the manufacturer failed to warn of any known dangers, the manufacturer may be responsible under products liability law. If the building owner or operator either knew or should have known about any potential hazards that presented an unreasonable risk of harm, the property owner may be liable.
