Elevator Accidents in Long Island
Long Island Personal Injury Attorney
The areas of Long Island (Nassau, Suffolk and Queens) have thousands of elevators in commercial buildings, apartment buildings, government offices and other buildings. We are constantly using elevators and usually think nothing of the possibility of an accident. Unfortunately, every year there are many elevator accidents, and the people involved can suffer serious injuries as well as severe emotional trauma.
An elevator accident can happen for a myriad of reasons. It may have been due to an electrical problem; it may have been caused by a structural component that was not properly installed. Sometimes accidents happen because the manufacturer of part of the elevator developed and sold a faulty mechanism. Poor maintenance is another common cause.
Filing a Claim for Damages
When you are facing a serious injury as well as attempting to file a claim for damages, fighting with the insurance companies is daunting and maybe even impossible. Proving fault often takes the investigation and trained eye of a seasoned professional.
