Elevator Accidents

Many of us ride an elevator everyday when we go to and from work.  We take for granted that the ride will be uneventful.  Although rare, when elevators malfunction and an accident occurs, the resulting injuries are often catastrophic.  And most elevator accidents are entirely preventable through regular inspection and maintenance.  The causes of elevator accidents may be complex.  The elevator equipment may have malfunctioned.  The property owner may have failed to ensure the elevator was properly maintained.  Workers may have incorrectly installed or repaired the equipment.
