Kenosha Elevator and Escalator Injury Attorneys

Elevators and escalators that are not properly maintained pose a serious threat to the welfare of individuals who ride, or attempt to ride them. Property owners have a legal responsibility to institute whatever precautionary measures are necessary to prevent hazards from developing; to identify dangers that are present; and to resolve any problems that are discovered or known. When they fail to do so, they may be found legally liable for injuries that guests on the property sustain as a result.

If you or a loved one was injured while riding an escalator or elevator, you may be entitled to financial compensation for medical costs, pain, suffering, and other damages.
