Why Do I Need A Elevator Accident Attorney In NY?

 

If you suffer an elevator injury or are in a escalator accident in New York, it is important that you work with a elevator accident attorney that has the specific knowledge regarding the related state and federal laws. This is the only way you can be sure your rights are protected and you receive the elevator injury settlement compensation you deserve.

New York residents and visitors use elevators and escalators every day without a second thought, but occasionally malfunctions occur and the aftermath can be catastrophic. New York has its own group of laws that govern elevator installation, inspection, and maintenance, which means in addition to the federal regulations, those involved in NY elevator accidents are faced with a large amount of complicated laws. There are different elevator and escalator laws based on whether an elevator is electric or hydraulic: electric elevators are governed by ANSI /ASME Standard A17.2.1, while hydraulic elevators are governed by ANSI/ASME Standard A17.2.2.

Who Is Responsible For Elevator Accidents & Escalator Accidents In New York?

 

Often, in larger buildings, the company responsible for maintaining the elevator or escalator is contracted by the building owner for service and maintenance. They might even have a repair person from the company onsite at all times and that repair person must be properly trained to inspect and service the equipment. In this case, both the owner of the building and the repair company could be held legally responsible if an elevator malfunction or escalator malfunction leads to injury.
