Elevator and Escalator Accidents Causing Personal Injuries in Fort Myers

Fort Myers is in Southwest Florida, south of Cape Coral, across the mouth of Caloosahatchee River. Lehigh Acres is the largest suburb area on its east side, while Estero and Naples are located south of Fort Myers. There are 78,000 people estimated to live in the city. They, as well the tourists flocking there, have access to many shopping malls, hotels, resorts, motels, retail stores, and many other commercial objects that use elevators and escalators to facilitate movement. These premises owners may be responsible for any injuries caused by elevator and escalator accidents at their locations. According to Florida premises liability laws, they owe visitors a duty of reasonable care, which means that they must take all the necessary measures to secure a safe environment for visitors. Improperly maintained elevators and escalators may indicate that they have breached this duty. If that led to the injury, they may be liable for your damages and losses.

The most common reasons leading to broken escalators and elevators in Fort Myers are:

  • Elevator being stuck between floors
  • Sudden drop of the elevator car
  • Malfunctions of control and wiring
  • Door of elevator opening earlier than needed, exposing riders at risk
  • Injuries sustained during embarking or disembarking of the escalator
  • Escalator accidents caused by poorly maintained escalators
  • Missing portions of tracks
  • Escalator accidents caused by missing steps
  • Having clothes or shoes entrapped by the escalator, causing falls and injuries
  • Too much space between steps and walls leading to injuries
