Elevator & Escalator Accidents in Michigan

INJURED? CALL OUR MICHIGAN PREMISES LIABILITY LAWYERS FOR HELP.

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.

COMMON TYPES OF ELEVATOR ACCIDENTS

Elevator accidents can be particularly dangerous for any Michigan-area child or elderly resident, as freefall poses a number of serious risks. Poor maintenance or a number of design flaws may contribute to one of the following dangerous situations:

  • Elevator freefall resulting from mechanical failure
  • Falls resulting from open elevator doors or exposed elevator due to mechanical failure
  • Misalignment of elevator as doors open
  • Electrocution from faulty or exposed wiring
  • Poorly adjusted sensors, causing doors to close on an individual

While Michigan elevator accidents may be devastating, Michigan escalator accidents also pose a number of potential hazards likely to arise from lack of proper maintenance or inherent flaws in design. If you were injured in a serious elevator or escalator accident in Texas, don’t wait to contact us at the Law Offices of Michigan Injury Attorneys. We may be able to help you file a premises liability claim for compensation.
