Have you ever been in an elevator and the elevator car stopped above or below the floor? At Worby Groner Edelman, we have handled numerous cases in which this happened where our clients were injured having tripped getting on or off the defective elevator cab.
In order to prove our cases, we retain the services of experts on elevators who examine the machinery and workings of the elevators to determine why the elevator did not stop level with the floor. In one case, the elevator company refused to settle, saying that it is normal for elevators to mis-level from time to time. However, after examining the internal parts of the elevator, our expert was able to conclude that one of the parts in the machinery room had not been replaced in a very long time and thereby caused the accident. As a result, we at Worby Groner Edelman were able to settle the case with the defendant elevator company for a large sum of money for our client.
If you, or anyone you know, has ever been injured getting on or off an elevator, call Worby Groner Edelman immediately. The sooner you act, the sooner we would be able to have an expert examine the machinery before the elevator company has time to repair or replace any defective parts or make any changes. Remember, there is never a fee unless we are successful.
