How Can I Recover Compensation After a Maryland Elevator Accident?

People use elevators on a daily basis in Maryland. If it is not in the right condition, these machines can cause dangerous accidents to happen.

What are Common Types of Elevator Accidents?

Elevators have various moving parts. These are required to work cohesively in order for it to function the way it is supposed to. If an elevator is defective and a malfunction occurs, it can lead to an accident. This may be the case in the event of the following:

Elevator accidents can cause injuries such as cuts and bruises, crush injuries, back/neck injuries, head trauma, severed limbs, broken bones, and even wrongful death. It is because of this that injured parties can file a personal injury claim to pursue legal action against the negligent party. The party that is negligent in these situations can vary depending on the circumstances. It may be a premises liability case if the accident was caused by a property owner’s negligence. The injured party may experience a product liability case if it was due to the negligence of the manufacturer. To hold them liable, the injured party is required to gather evidence that shows their negligence directly caused the injuries. Evidence for a case can include security camera footage, witness statements, police reports, pictures of the safety hazard, medical documentation of the injuries you sustained, and more.
