When is a property owner responsible for personal injuries someone sustains because of elevator or escalators that are not properly maintained or are otherwise defective?

Routine escalator maintenance is done to help avoid escalator accidents.  Escalators are found in malls, office buildings, hotels, shopping stores, and many other public and private places, including buildings or spaces used for the movement of visitors, customers, residents, and others, when they go to work or generally run errands and shop, and as such the owners and operators of the buildings, must assure the safety of visitors, as they move from safely from floor to floor.

A property owner must fix and otherwise maintain broken elevator or escalators, to ensure that they are not cracked, broken, electrically sound, and otherwise not defective. These pedestrian elevators or escalators must be free from wet or slippery substances, which must be immediately cleaned or adequately marked.

Escalator and staircase areas are to be maintained by the property owner, and must remain clear of debris and other obstacles; these include parking garage elevators or escalators which also must be well-lit, secure, and properly maintained. When an escalator on a property is not maintained in a safe condition, the property owner is responsible for the injuries sustained as a result of perhaps, a slippery substance, a broken or missing piece, damaged carpet, improper escalator height, negligent escalator design, broken railings, and just about any other dangerous condition brought about through the property owners negligence and failure to repair the defective and dangerous escalator condition

If you or a family member has been injured due to an escalator related accident, because property owners did not meet their obligations to ensure your safety when they knew or should have known that a dangerous condition existed on the escalator, and they failed to correct it, they are liable for the injuries that you sustained as a result of the defective or otherwise improperly maintained escalator. The Suffolk law firm of Birzon and Associates, can help you receive the compensation you need for your medical expenses, loss of income and loss of future earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more, for the elevator or escalator related injuries.

Slipping and falling on an elevator or escalator or on a wet spot, or tripping over uneven or damaged escalator stairs, or torn carpet in an elevator, improperly functioning and maintained escalators and elevators, are among the most common types of elevator or escalator related premises liability accidents.

The lawyers at Birzon and Associates, have deep knowledge of Long Island, NY, escalator construction and maintenance laws and know how to investigate, build and support a claim on your behalf — whether the accident occurred, while you were going up or down an elevator or escalator in a private, public, commercial or government property, and including accidents that may be connected to elevator or escalators, located at a construction site or that happened, while you were a pedestrian on an elevator, escalator, or passenger conveyor belt at an airport, hotel, transit center, or casino, or recreation establishment, such as a stadium or movie theater

If your elevator or escalator related serious physical injury has been caused through the negligence of a state, city, county, or local municipality, or other government entity, then, in order to preserve your right to bring a claim for compensation of your injuries, a Notice of Claim must be filed within 90 days of the date of the accident.
