It also abounds with many other facilities such as casinos, hotels, malls, retail stores, and other facilities that use elevators and escalators to make movement easier. However, they also cause accident and injuries. The most common of them include:

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

The injuries caused by these accidents range from bruises to serious ones such as brain injuries, broken bones, neck injuries, scars, and others. If you happen to be injured in an escalator or elevator accident, you may have the right to get compensated for your medical bills, medical devices bills, medication bills, pain and suffering and loss of earnings depending on the circumstances of your case.

Before claiming damages recovery, it is essential to determine from whom you should do so. According to Florida premises liability laws, it is likely the establishment operating with the elevator or escalator. They owe visitors a duty of reasonable care, which means that they must take all the reasonable steps for preventing accidents from happening. When they breach this duty due to negligence by improperly maintained escalators and elevators, that may lead to accident. They can be liable for the injuries and deaths caused by those accidents.
