In New York, elevators are everywhere you go throughout your day. We all ride them countless times each week. But did you know that elevators play a role in injuring 17,000 people and killing 30 each year in the U.S.?
Those working around, in or near elevators are most at risk, as are passengers who are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. There are strict mechanisms in place to ensure the regular maintenance and operation of elevators but things can and sometimes do go wrong, anyway.
If you have been injured in an elevator-related accident, it’s important for you to speak with a lawyer who is experienced in navigating all the issues surrounding those responsible for your injury and will be dedicated to making sure your rights are protected while you fully recover.
