Who is Liable for Texas Elevator Accidents, Injuries & Fatalities?

On average, 575 million people are transported by elevators every business day in the U.S., according to the National Elevator Industry, Inc. statistics. While most of these trips up and down structures occur without incident, over 10,000 people are injured in elevator accidents each year, and another 25 are killed.

When building owners fail to maintain their facilities and the elevators that operate therein regularly, they may be held liable for injuries that occur on their property. Because many of these elevator accidents can be prevented by proper maintenance and timely repairs, our Hollingsworth Law Firm personal injury attorneys in Houston focus on pursuing the negligent party — or combination of parties — liable for our Texas clients’ injuries or the losses of their loved ones.
