Escalator and Elevator Accidents

Elevators and escalators are installed for our convenience. Yet they cause painful and serious injuries to many innocent passengers every year. Was your foot mangled after getting caught in an escalator? Did a malfunctioning elevator cause you to trip, fall, and sustain an injury?


At the Law Offices of Richard C. Woods, our attorneys have won significant damage awards for dozens of clients injured in escalator and elevator accidents. We can help you, too. To discuss the specifics of your case, please contact our office in Stoneham, Massachusetts today to arrange a free consultation and case evaluation.


We work with engineers, medical experts, and accident investigators to determine exactly what happened and who is at fault. In our investigation, we will find out not only who designed and manufactured the elevator or escalator, but who installed and maintained it. We will pursue all possible sources of financial compensation for an elevator accident or escalator injury.


Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you may still be able to recover money damages for your injuries, medical and rehabilitation expenses, pain and suffering, and property damage.


Did the elevator car you were riding in suddenly plunge, sending you to the floor? Did it fail to stop level with the building floor, causing you to trip and fall as you exited? Was your escalator injury caused by inadequate warning signs or lack of an emergency shut off control?

However you were injured, we know how to help. Please contact us today to discuss the specifics of your case. The initial consultation is free and you will pay no attorney fees unless we win monetary damages in your injury claim.
