Elevator and Escalator Accidents and Personal Injuries: Who Can Provide Legal Help?

Elevator and Escalator Accidents and Personal Injuries: Who Can Provide Legal Help?

30 Years of Personal Injury Law Legal Assistance in Pennsylvania and New Jersey

When a car rear ends yours and you are injured, police arrive at the scene, the other driver usually provides insurance information and insurance adjustors and/or attorneys assist you in recovering compensation. When a surgeon’s negligence leads to serious injury, you can easily identify the likely defendant in your medical malpractice claim. But how do you proceed when you’re injured by a malfunctioning elevator or escalator?

The personal injury attorneys of The Law Offices of John E. Kusturiss, Jr. can help. With more than three decades of premises liability legal experience in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, we are highly skilled at:

  • Investigating the causes of elevator and escalator malfunctions
  • Identifying all available insurance coverage
  • Locating witnesses, including expert witnesses
  • Working with medical care providers to document injuries
  • Negotiating and litigating for injured clients’ full financial compensation

A key fact of elevator and escalator malfunctions is that they rarely occur as pure accidents. Most often, maintenance technicians fail to provide effective regular maintenance, or property owners fail to respond to reports of malfunctioning machines, or manufacturers fail to produce safe and reliable machines.

We can work to quickly determine why an elevator plunged, its doors opened prematurely, or a situation arose that allowed an individual to fall into the elevator shaft. Our ability to obtain high-value compensation for our clients is illustrated by the fact that firm attorney John E. Kusturiss, Jr. is a member of the exclusive Million Dollar Advocate Forum. In fact, our firm has achieved resolutions as high as $4.5 million.
