Elevator Accident Attorneys San Diego

Our Attorneys in San Diego Help Victims of Elevator Injury Accidents

Serving Southern California since 1996

You probably never think twice about stepping onto an elevator. However, you risk serious injuries if they malfunction. In fact, 207 people died in elevator accidents from 1992 to 2001. Of these individuals, 61 were passengers and the remaining were either construction workers or elevator service operators. Many more people sustained serious injuries such as amputations, crush injuries, spinal damage and brain trauma.

Sidiropoulos Law Firm, APC was established in 1996 to protect the rights of injury victims. Elevator accidents are often catastrophic and usually preventable. Our lawyers show you and your family compassion and respect while we aggressively pursue maximum compensation from the parts manufacturer, the maintenance company or the property owner responsible for your physical and emotional injuries suffered when the:

Elevator car went into a free fall

Sensor did not stop the doors from closing on you

Doors opened into the elevator shaft

Elevator stopped between floors

The manufacturer of the elevator may be held responsible if some part of the apparatus failed.

Evidence of a history of failure for a specific part in similar elevators may indicate that the manufacturer knew the equipment posed a risk.

Liability for negligent maintenance of the elevator

The service company that was responsible for performing routine inspections of the elevator should be held liable when the equipment malfunctions. Independent inspectors are tasked with conducting a thorough inspection that includes reporting worn parts or anything else that puts people’s safety in jeopardy. In addition, the maintenance crew is supposed to take certain precautions while working on the elevator — such as turning off power and engaging the braking system — and is liable for neglecting these vital safety measures.

Premises liability for elevator accidents

The owner of the building may also be responsible for injuries or deaths that occur in an elevator accident. For example, if the owner or landlord failed to have safety inspections carried out at appropriate intervals or to comply with repair recommendations, the building owner may be considered negligent.
