Escalator and Elevator Injuries

Elevators and escalators are installed in buildings to make it easier for people to move from floor to floor. However, these complicated machines are made up of many working parts. Building owners and managers must frequently inspect elevators and escalators on their premises to ensure they operate safely for those who use them. If building staff are negligent in their duties, innocent people could be injured as a result.

If you or someone you care about has been injured while riding an elevator or escalator, you could be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries. For more information, contact the Waukesha elevator injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.®, at (800) 242-2874 today. You should not have to pay when someone else is responsible for your injuries.

  • Negligent maintenance and inspection routines
  • Failing to follow the recommendations of an elevator maintenance consultant
