Who Is Responsible For Elevator Accidents In New York?

In the state of New York, property owners are responsible for injuries caused by a defective, malfunctioning, or otherwise unsafe elevator. Depending on the cause of the accident, the elevator manufacturer and the company that serviced the elevator may also be responsible. An experienced New York elevator accident lawyer at our law firm will work with experts to uncover the cause of the accident and hold all liable parties responsible.

Causes Of Elevator Defects & Malfunctions:

  • Faulty wiring or an elevator control malfunction
  • Unbalanced leveling or a pulley malfunction
  • Improper maintenance or inspections
  • Unfinished or incomplete repairs

Elevator Accidents That Can Result In Serious Injury:

  • An elevator car stopping out of level with the floor
  • An elevator car stopping between floors
  • The sudden drop or stop of the elevator
  • Falls in the elevator shaft
  • Doors that close on individuals entering or exiting the elevator

Often, the cause of an elevator accident may be traced to improper maintenance, defective safety devices, or failure of the owner to correct known defects. The civil justice system can send a strong message to property owners in New York that they are responsible for ensuring safe elevators in their building. An experienced elevator accident lawyer can help you understand your rights, and identify if legal action is an option.
