While elevators and escalators are relatively safe systems and most Michigan residents utilize them without incident, an alarming number of people are injured in elevators and on escalators every year. The elderly and the very young make up a disproportionate percentage of these accidents. In fact, between 1990 and 2005, around 40,000 elderly people and 29,000 children were hospitalized for elevator and escalator accidents. Typically, these types of accidents are the result of poor maintenance or design.
