Injured Due to Another’s Negligence?
Elevator safety is taken very seriously. If you use an elevator on a daily basis at work or at home, you might walk inside as soon as you hear the ding without even looking up from your phone. If you are hired to perform maintenance or construction on an elevator, you deserve to feel safe and confident as you do your job. When someone is seriously hurt in an elevator accident, it is likely due to negligence.
Negligence that can lead to these accidents includes:
- Foregoing regular inspections
- Flaws in the unit’s design
- Faulty materials used during construction.
- Lack of warning and emergency notifications
- Failure to test and expect elevator before selling
