An escalator is a moving conveyor staircase that carries people between floors of a building. When escalators are not properly maintained, escalator accidents can happen. Most escalator accidents occur when an escalator suddenly stops, have wet, slippery surfaces or when clothing, fingers and toes get caught in the metal teeth of the escalator.
Although escalator accidents are not as common as car accidents, injuries from escalator accidents do occur. People step onto escalators without thinking about potential danger. Escalator accidents can often be attributed to the negligence in maintenance requirements by manufacturers and service vendors. Escalator accidents can cause minor to severe injuries, including broken bones, scars, abrasions, flesh wounds and even wrongful death, which can result in pain and suffering and high medical bills.
Escalator accident lawyers can help clients overcome their personal injury. Lawyers can consult with engineers and safety specialists to determine the source of the escalator malfunction that led to the injury.
