Property owners must provide their tenants and visitors with safe, well-maintained premises, just as manufacturers owe their customers properly functioning equipment. These two statements hold true in the case of escalators and elevators. These complicated machines make climbing between floors possible, however when they are not properly maintained the victims experience severe pain and injury. The consequences of an elevator or escalator accident can be life-changing.
If you or someone you love has fallen prey to the negligence of others, contact The Law Offices of David P. Kashani, APLC right away. Our team can help get you the satisfactory outcome that you deserve.
Elevators and escalators aren’t just meant to get from one floor to another. They are both complicated pieces of machinery, with a lot of moving parts that require attention and maintenance. When building owners and managers fail to maintain their equipment properly, and when they fail to notify their tenants or visitors of equipment malfunction, the results can be disastrous. Common causes for accidents involving elevators and escalators include:
- Failing to perform regular inspections of elevators or escalators in use
- Neglecting to properly tend to the machine’s maintenance promptly
- The manufacturer fails to identify product flaws and to provide a proper fix
- Property owners neglecting to close and mark malfunctioning equipment.
Property owners and product manufacturers each bear responsibility for the escalator and elevator. They owe it to the public to provide safe equipment, and when they fail to do so, the results can be catastrophic for the victims.
