Elevator Accidents

You’ve Been Injured by an Unsafe Elevator in Pennsylvania. Now What?

Elevator accidents are, like medical malpractice injuries and plane accidents, somewhat unusual. Why? Because, unlike car accidents, there are fewer variables and risks. Only professionals can maintain elevators and, like in the medical and flight industries, countless regulations and official procedures are in place to ensure safety in the long term. When an elevator accident occurs, then, it is likely because a property owner, elevator manufacturer or maintenance company negligently cuts corners.

If you have been injured in an elevator, contact the personal injury attorneys of Metzger & Kleiner for qualified legal help. We have investigated and litigated numerous elevator and escalator accidents, including elevator accidents involving:

  • Broken pulleys.
  • Falls through elevator shafts.
  • Electric shock.
  • Misalignment problems, i.e. when an elevator door opens and the elevator box is between floors.
  • Doors that close with too much force.

An insurance carrier may attempt to settle the case in an attempt to limit its payout and loss. If an insurer has offered to settle your case following an elevator accident, you can be assured that it 1) has consulted its own lawyer, and 2) believes it can save money via a quick settlement.

Before you believe an insurer that tells you its acting in your best interest, consult a plaintiff attorney with a record of fighting for injury victims. At Metzger & Kleiner our two-attorney team has fought injury victims’ rights for decades. We can conduct an efficient investigation and determine the true value of your claim. To schedule a no-charge consultation following an elevator accident in Philadelphia, contact us at 1-800-228-1760.
