Escalator Accidents Causing Wrongful Death
It’s not often that someone is killed in an escalator accident, but 1/3 of deaths on an escalator occurred when the clothing or footwear of someone riding on an escalator got caught in the escalator. 2/3 of deaths on an escalator occurred from a head injury when someone fell while riding on an escalator. It is far more common for people to be killed in elevator accidents.
If you have a loved one who was killed due to an escalator accident, we would like to represent the decedent’s estate for wrongful death. Please read what we can do for you in a wrongful death lawsuit.
Escalators are required to be inspected annually for safety, and there are many safety regulations to prevent escalator accidents.

Many personal injury lawyers are unwilling to hire an escalator expert because of the cost involved, but we know an escalator expert is well worth the cost. We will advance the cost of an escalator expert for you.
