Philadelphia Elevator Accident Lawyer
Elevator accidents can be newsworthy disasters. You are in a building, you need to go to the 15th floor, and all of a sudden, while you are on your way, the elevator abruptly stops, causing you and everyone on the elevator to fall to the ground. Even worse, you are now hurt and trapped in this little space with other potentially injured or panicked passengers.
Part of your claim involves your status on the elevator. Are you an invitee, a tenant of the building, a delivery person, or a person on the property to visit another Tenant? The building owes business invitees the highest duty of care when on the property. The building has an obligation to have a qualified elevator inspector routinely inspect the inner workings of the lift so that it does not malfunction or stop while carrying passengers. The building or the elevator company or even the elevator maintenance company can individually or jointly be held responsible.
