The Firm You Go to When the 
Stakes Are High

New York Elevator Accident Lawyer

Elevator accidents are more common than most people think. Every year, thousands of Americans report personal injuries incurred as a result of elevator and escalator accidents. In fact, a federal report shows that from 1992-1998 at least 27 deaths occurred each year as a result of elevator accidents.

Old, poorly maintained elevators are often, but not always, the cause of these accidents. Sometimes a manufacturer’s poor design may be responsible for an elevator accident. But on many occasions, however, building owners fail to address the premises liability issues related to a poorly serviced elevator such as misleveling, door malfunctions, abrupt stopping, or falls.

Serious personal injuries and even death can occur when elevator cables snap, or when elevators suddenly drop or stop. Accidents can also arise when elevator doors open while the elevator cabin itself is not present, or when elevator doors unexpectedly open if leaned upon.

Some of the major elevator manufacturers are Otis Elevator Co., Westinghouse, U.S. Elevator, Jared Brown Bros., Inc., Jared Products Inc., Crane Midwest Co., Turnbull Elevator, Unidynamics Corp., Allen & Sons, Inc., Colby Crane & Manufacturing, and ROC Dover Corp.

The New York elevator accident lawyers at Levy Konigsberg LLP, a premier personal injury law firm with offices in New York and New Jersey, have represented clients who have been injured in elevator accidents.

An elevator accident lawyer handling this type of personal injury lawsuit should understand how elevators work and are maintained as well as applicable building codes, inspection procedures, and industry standards.
