Escalators are everywhere, but because they are so common, most people never think about them as posing any immediate risk.

Factors in Escalator Accidents
Escalator accidents are more common than elevator accidents. The number of escalator accidents in the United States is growing. Moreover, the growing number of accidents appears to be in vulnerable populations such as elderly people and children. Escalator accidents have been the result of safety code violations, poor maintenance, and defective parts and components of the escalator and surrounding space. The lawyers at Proner & Proner understand the mechanics of escalator operation. They have helped victims of accidents caused by:
- Missing teeth on escalator track
- Loose or missing screws
- Slippery surfaces
- Sudden stops
- Poor design resulting in too much distance between step and side of escalator
Defects like these can result in a variety of entrapments that cause serious injuries and even fatalities. If you were injured in an elevator or escalator accident, or if a loved one died because of failures resulting from negligence, an injury lawyer can advise you about your rights and legal options.
