Types Of Elevator Accidents

Elevators and escalators can be dangerous pieces of equipment that if not properly maintained, can malfunction and cause serious injuries. Elevator passengers can be seriously injured in elevator accidents, including:

  • Trips and falls: people can easily slip, trip or fall when entering or leaving an elevator, especially if the elevator is not properly installed.
  • Automatic doors: elevator doors can shut while a person is entering or exiting an elevator, potentially causing severe injuries. Although there is normally a safety feature that prevents this, a malfunctioning elevator door can cause injury.
  • Elevator drop: A sudden drop of the elevator car can cause deadly injuries to occupants of the elevator.
