Elevator Accidents

Elevators transport people at great speed and to great heights. If an elevator fails, the consequences for passengers and bystanders can be devastating. For this reason, property owners and managers must conduct regular inspections and perform regular maintenance on elevators. Elevator maintenance companies must perform the work properly in order to avoid accidents. If you or a loved one sustains injury or suffers wrongful death due to an elevator accident in New York, you may be entitled to financial damages to compensate you for your injuries. To succeed in such a claim against a building owner, occupier, manager or maintenance company you will need experienced attorneys to prove that the injury arose due to company negligence.
