Escalators are found in airports, department stores, convention centers, and even in office buildings. Most of us hop on them without giving a second thought to our safety; however, escalators have been known to malfunction and cause injuries to innocent victims.

Escalators seem to always be moving; however, many of us have witnessed stopped escalators before, which could mean that a malfunction occurred, a faulty part was found, or maintenance is being done on the machine. Sometimes these out-of-work escalators could have already caused an escalator injury by suddenly reversing directions or stopping, causing the steps to collapse.

When this happens, people riding on the escalator at the time it malfunctions can fall down, get trampled on, or stuck in a collapsed step. This often causes serious injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Knee injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Arm and leg injuries
  • Head injury
  • Spinal cord damage

If you were injured in a Peachtree City escalator accident, you need to seek medical attention immediately and talk with a skilled premises liability lawyer as soon as possible. Premises liability cases are sometimes complex, and an attorney will need to get started proving liability immediately following your accident and injury. This can include inspecting maintenance records and determining if the maintenance company, manufacturer of the escalator, or building owner is liable for this malfunction.

Don’t delay calling today to find out more about your rights to a financial recovery. The Law Offices of Shane Smith offers free case consultations to help you determine if you have a potential premises liability case.
