Elevator Accidents: Scary and Life-Changing

Some of the more terrifying elevator accidents include:

Proving Liability

Our Brooklyn elevator accident attorneys kick off a case by reviewing all relevant facts to identify who is to blame for the accident. Sometimes, the answer is not immediately clear, in which case our team can request additional information.

Often, the owner or operator of the elevator is liable for the accident. This entity could have refused to make necessary repairs or not have had the elevator inspected. When the owner/operator knows that something is wrong, they have a duty to fix the elevator or put it out of service.

Other entities might also be liable. For example, the elevator could have been defectively manufactured or designed. In this case, the entity that made and sold the elevator might legally be on the hook for paying compensation to victims.
