Escalator Injuries

There are more than 17,000 people injured in the United States each year on elevators and escalators, including about 30 people who are killed.  These statistics come from the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Most injuries on escalators happen to children.  The most common type of injury is an entrapment injury, where a child's fingers, toes, shoelaces or something else becomes trapped between the back of one step on an escalator and the front of the step behind it.  Safety codes limit the amount of space between steps, but many escalators have spaces that are too large between steps.

Steps on an escalator are typically not connected to one another.  Instead, they are pushed along by large chains located on the side the steps.  These chains require regular maintenance, but often problems develop because an escalator is not properly maintained.

If you or someone you know have been injured in Florida by an escalator or elevator, we would be happy to speak to your about your claim.  We are passionate about justice and achieving good results for our clients.  We offer a free consultation, so please give us a call.
