Milwaukee Elevator Injury Attorney
Elevators and escalators are modern conveniences used by millions of Americans on a daily basis with no problem. In almost every case, they run smoothly and no injuries are caused. Defects, poor manufacturing or maintenance, however, create a very real possibility of injury.
Specifically with elevators, many people have the misconception that a fall from a dramatic height is what causes injury. In actuality, many elevator injuries occur in short drops. Elevators are installed with automatic braking systems in the event of failure, but this device can fail to function.
Escalators require frequent inspection, maintenance, and service given their complexity. When the stairs have too much distance between them and a stationary rail, there may be a very real hazard; a hand or foot can get easily caught, causing injury.
If you or someone close has suffered an elevator or escalator injury, call a Milwaukee product liability attorney for legal help.
