New Haven Elevator Accident Lawyers
Elevators are a common mode of transportation for people and goods. They can be found in hotels, shopping malls, hospitals, apartments, and are frequently used at construction sites.
An elevator that has been inadequately maintained or was unsafely designed has the potential to cause serious harm to a passenger. Injuries sustained in elevator accidents can range from life-altering brain injuries to wrongful death. If you or a loved one has been injured in an elevator accident in Connecticut, it is important to seek the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney. It is also important not to discuss your accident with anyone or sign any documents from insurance companies.

Why Do Elevator Accidents Happen?
When serious elevator accidents happen, liability usually falls on one or more of three parties. The manufacturer of the elevator may be responsible for injuries resulting from defective elevator design, equipment or construction. The owner of the property where the elevator is located may be liable if regular and adequate safety inspections and repairs were not performed. Service companies that fail to conduct thorough inspections and maintenance can also be held responsible for injuries.
