Claims that may arise include power failure, errors by an elevator operator, speed or malfunction of an elevator or lift, and sudden stop or start, and our attorneys are prepared to defend against any elevator liability claim. Our civil team of attorneys will provide personalized representation, gather all relevant evidence, assess damages, and aggressively defend an elevator liability claim during mediation, arbitration, or trial.
