Elevator Accidents

Elevator Accidents

Elevator and escalator accidents occur much more frequently than we care to think, often resulting in injury and death. During the last decade, OSHA attributes over 200 deaths to elevators and escalators (both workers and passengers). In addition, there are hundreds of injuries that resulted from faulty, unsafe or malfunctioning elevator and escalators in the U.S.

With population increases and urbanization of the cities, elevator and escalator accidents can be expected to increase as well. Escalator injury cases typically result from slip and fall situations, where a person sustains harm due to the height of the escalator. The large mass of the elevator itself causes great injuries to passengers and can leave victims permanently disabled.
