    Chicago Premises Liability Lawyers

    Elevator passengers can be injured when an elevator car drops suddenly or stops above or below the floor, or when the elevator doors close too quickly or fail to retract upon contact.

    Escalator passengers can be injured when an escalator stops or accelerates suddenly or moves irregularly such that passengers can lose their balance and fall. Passengers can also be injured if the gap between the escalator stairs and the sidewalls are too large or when objects become trapped at the plate at the end of the escalator.

    If you have been injured in an elevator or escalator accident, you may have a cause of action against the property owner, property management company or maintenance company under a premises liability theory. Premises liability creates the legal responsibility of property owners (and others responsible for maintaining property such as property management companies) to exercise a duty of reasonable care to ensure that their property is safe.

    Elevator and escalator accidents involve complex legal issues. The Chicago premises liability attorneys at Ankin Law have represented clients in a wide variety of personal injury cases, including premises liability cases such as elevator and escalator accidents.
