Elevator & Escalator Accidents
Modern society has relied on escalators and elevators for decades. Unfortunately, they can be dangerous if not installed or maintained properly. Every year more than 10,000 people across the U.S. are seriously injured in accidents that occur during riding on or stepping onto or off of an escalator or elevator.* Injuries can include serious fractures of the legs, feet and arms, as well as catastrophic back injuries.
