The Law Office of Richard Stelnik represents people who have been injured due to defective elevators and escalators. Elevator accidents that result in injuries include situations where elevator doors improperly open or fail to open, where elevator doors close improperly, where the elevator fails to level properly, where the elevator gets stuck between floors, and where a fire or other emergency results in people being trapped inside an elevator. In the industrial context, freight elevators are sometimes operated improperly and in violation of applicable laws and regulations, resulting in accidents. Escalator accidents include situations where a rider's shoes, clothes or body are caught between the moving stairs and another part of the escalator.
