Causes of Elevator Accidents
Most elevator accidents are either caused by defective design and/or manufacture or by improper maintenance.
With 50 years of combined legal experience, our Las Vegas elevator accident attorneys represent clients injured in a range of elevator accidents caused by:
- Faulty brakes
- Elevators opening between floors
- Doors closing unexpectedly
- Door jams
- Falling into the elevator shaft
- Elevator misleveling
When limbs are caught in elevator doors, fractures and broken bones are common. When cables fail, causing passengers to plummet to the bottom of the elevator shaft, people can suffer serious, potentially fatal injuries. A passenger may also suffer a back injury or neck injury from a slip-and-fall incident caused by misleveling.
If your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, we will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case. We will gather all available evidence, which may include video footage inside the elevator, and consult with experts to pinpoint liability. Rest assured, we will not be satisfied until we recover maximum compensation for your injuries.
Seeking Justice for Accident Victims
If you have been hurt in an elevator accident due to the negligent actions of a manufacturer or property owner, we can help you obtain damages for your medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering, as well as future expenses for a potentially permanent physical disability.
