Elevator and Escalator Injury

Defectively designed and/or negligently inspected and maintained elevators and escalators cause thousands of injuries every year, some of them fatal. Elevators and escalators perform simple functions, but they are complex machines. Personal injury claims involving them include unique issues.

Elevator and escalator injury cases often involve claims of negligent manufacturing, defective design, lack of proper installation, negligent maintenance, negligent inspection, and/or improper installation. Defendants can include manufacturers, component parts manufacturers, premises owners, maintenance contractors, installers, and/or inspection contractors.

The Elevator & Escalator Injury Litigation Group was formed in 2019.

This Litigation Group will act as a resource for members handling claims involving injuries due to elevators and/or escalators. Litigation Group members will have access to expert witness information, the Elevator & Escalator Injury Litigation Group Document Library, and the Litigation Group’s list server. The Litigation Group will serve to coordinate litigation strategy, including causes of action and establishing liability effectively, and will hold meetings and educational programs throughout the year.
