Phoenix Elevator Accident Lawyers
Elevator accident injuries can happen in any building or construction site where elevators are operated.
There are generally three main parties that can be held responsible for an elevator accident. The first is the manufacturer of the elevator or manufacturer of parts used in the elevator operation. For example, if someone is hurt or killed in an elevator accident because of the failure of a faulty part, the manufacturer of that part can be liable if they had prior knowledge that that specific part had failed in the past. The second party that can be held responsible is the service company that does the safety inspections of the elevator. If an inspector does not complete a thorough inspection or fails to report worn parts and an elevator accident occurs, the service company has to take responsibility for putting people at risk. The third party that can be held responsible is the property or business owner that owns the building and elevator. If a landlord fails to have the required safety inspections on time and an accident results, they can be held liable for injuries and damages caused in the elevator accident.
