Compassionate Counsel and Direction in the Aftermath of a Texas Elevator Accident
The elevator is an invention with ancient roots: it is believed that Greek inventor Archimedes first thought of and built an elevator in approximately 236 B.C. This invention has become more refined and powerful over the centuries since its introduction, and is a necessity for moving cargo and people to the top floors of downtown Dallas skyscrapers. Although the power source and sophistication of these devices has changed (the first elevators were powered by animals or humans), the dangers that malfunctioning elevators present to humans remain.

Causes of Elevator Injuries and Accidents in Dallas and Fort Worth
An elevator accident that results in injury to you or your loved one is rarely an “accident” – instead, many times an elevator crash or incident comes about because one or more individuals did not give appropriate care or concern to the installation, operation, and/or maintenance of the elevator. For example, an elevator crash caused by these or other circumstances may result in your ability to recover compensation:
- Installation of an elevator that is defective or not properly certified;
- A property owner who fails to have his or her elevator inspected by local authorities on a regular basis;
- The owner of a building who does not have his or her building’s elevator serviced by an appropriately trained company or individual;
- Failing to promptly schedule repairs after learning that the elevator may not be functioning properly; and/or
- Failing to take the elevator out of service and/or warn others about the elevator with appropriate signage when the elevator is malfunctioning.
