Elevator and Escalator Accidents

Elevator and Escalator Accidents

Florida property owners have a duty to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition in order to not cause harm to those who enter the property.

This duty encompasses the obligation to ensure elevators and escalators are in safe working condition. If an accident was caused because of a property owner’s failure to maintain an elevator or escalator, that property owner may be held accountable. If the victim’s injuries were caused because the elevator or escalator was defective, the injured victim may also be able to file a claim against the manufacturer of the elevator or escalator.
Thus, an elevator or escalator accident can give rise to a premises liability claim as well as a products liability claim. If liability is established, the injured victim may be entitled to medical expenses, lost income and benefits, pain and suffering, rehabilitation costs, and more. The exact amount of compensation an individual may be entitled to will vary depending on the nature and extent of the harm suffered.
