In Manhattan and throughout New York City, millions of people use elevators and escalators each day at work and at home. It is easy to take their functionality for granted and assume they pose no risk. But injuries happen every year that leave people injured and in need of financial resources to heal.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an incident involving an elevator or escalator, it is in your best interest to seek the counsel of a personal injury lawyer. There are many intertwined issues and parties in these cases, and going after what you deserve without an attorney is a recipe for disaster.
At the Sheindlin Law Firm, I have been helping NYC injury victims recover compensation for more than 20 years. Whether you were caught in an elevator, suffered an injury due to an escalator or were victim to another misfortune on an unsafe property, I can help you explore your options for recovering financial compensation.
This is crucial, as medical costs can add up very quickly. It will be my mission to make sure you recover the funds you need to cover your costs now and in the future as your injuries heal. This includes making sure you are compensated for your pain and suffering, and the paychecks you miss while you are out of work.
There are many laws and codes that apply to elevator installations, inspections and maintenance. As a result, there are many possible sources of compensation when something goes wrong. I can determine all liable parties and hold them accountable for what you have been through. Contact me today to discuss your situation in a free, no-obligation consultation.
