Elevator Accident Cases

Each year, the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries reports several hundred deaths in work-related elevator accidents alone. Elevator accidents, including falls, elevators trapping an individual between the shaft wall, doors opening onto empty shafts, and accidental ascents and descents, can easily result in catastrophic injury or death. In the event of an elevator accident, a lawyer from our firm can help you file a claim against any and all liable parties for damages. Property owners and third-party maintenance companies are obligated to keep elevators in good working order and to ensure they are safe for public use.

In the event of an elevator accident, it may be possible to file a suit against the following parties:

  • Elevator manufacturer
  • Maintenance company responsible for upkeep and repair
  • Elevator or property owner

If you or a loved one have been injured or killed in an elevator accident, our compassionate Des Moines elevator accident attorneys can provide your family with informed legal counsel and diligent representation.

Escalator Accident Cases

According to reports published by CBS News, approximately 10,000 people make emergency room visits each year in the United States as a result of escalator accidents. Escalators can cause severe injury, including cuts, abrasions, and accidental amputations caused by body parts being caught in a moving apparatus.

If you or someone you love has suffered an injury or disfigurement as a result of an escalator accident, a lawyer from LaMarca Law Group, P.C. can help ensure that you are justly compensated for damages. In an escalator injury lawsuit, the plaintiff can typically obtain compensation for medical costs, rehabilitation costs, loss of wages (including future wages), inhibited earning capacity, and pain and suffering. If the property owner was woefully negligent in maintaining a safe environment for individuals, it may also be possible to file for punitive damages to punish the liable party for its reckless and damaging actions. You can rest assured that a Des Moines escalator accident attorney from LaMarca Law Group, P.C. will help you obtain the compensation that you deserve.
