Elevator Accidents

New York Elevator Accident Lawyers

Many buildings and elevators in New York City date back to the turn of the century.  Elevators may not be up to code - requiring immediate maintenance that can be overlooked by property owners.  When an individual is injured in an elevator accident that is due to a property owner's negligence, that individual may be entitled to compensation.  At LaRock & Perez, L.L.P., we help people who have been injured in elevator accidents obtain fair compensation.

Hazardous conditions can lead to elevator accidents

The Elevator Advisory Council and the Buildings Department recommend that older elevators are retrofitted with Z-brackets and kickstops.  These simple steps can reinforce old elevator doors, which can give way if a person applies enough force.  It is also requires that property owners respond to safety violations and take measures to maintain elevators.  Poorly maintained elevators can lead to occurrences of the following:
  • Misleveling Elevator - resulting in trips and falls
  • Sudden drops - resulting in serious neck and back injuries
  • Sudden Closing doors - resulting in crush injuries to the body
  • Jammed doors
Elevator accidents at construction sites
