When elevators and escalators in commercial buildings aren’t properly calibrated or maintained, their failure can cause serious injuries--paralysis, death and amputation. When elevators fail to level properly, serious injuries can occur from falls due to the height difference between the floor of the elevator and the floor you’re trying to reach.
In Colorado, we have strong safety regulations for the operation, use and maintenance of elevators and escalators. We work with national elevator experts to establish the negligence and knowledge of building owners and elevator maintenance and repair companies for elevator failures that put their guests and our clients at risk. Early investigation and identifying the nature and reason for the elevator’s failure is key.
If you’ve been injured due to the mechanical failure of an Elevator or Escalator, be sure to immediately report the incident to the owners of the building and call us to represent you on your case.
