Brooklyn Escalator Accident Attorneys

Experienced Escalator Accident Lawyers in Brooklyn Ready to Help You

Escalator accidents are often some of the most horrifying that we see in our legal practice. Escalators move people between floors and are popular in malls and public buildings, including airports. However, escalators are dangerous pieces of equipment that are regulated by local, city, state, and federal laws.

If you were injured on an escalator, or if you know someone who was, then we encourage you to reach out to a lawyer at our firm. We can investigate what happened, identify who is to blame, and fight for generous compensation for your injuries.

Type of Escalator Accidents

A person can suffer a serious injury in the following types of accidents:

Entrapment injuries are particularly serious because the escalator must be shut off to free the person, and injuries can worsen as the escalator runs.

Over the years, escalators have become extraordinarily complex. Many have computer systems that run them, which can malfunction. An injured victim needs a Brooklyn escalator accident attorney who understands this area of law to bring the best claim possible.

Assigning Liability for a Brooklyn Escalator Accident

Among the entities that might be to blame are the following:

Assigning liability is complicated but important. An entity is not to blame unless their negligence or other wrongful conduct contributed to your injuries.

At our firm, we can obtain necessary documents, including inspection records, a repair list, and any surveillance video that could have captured the accident.
