Escalator Accident Lawyers in Phoenix, Arizona
Escalator accidents can be caused by a multitude of things, whether it is due to improper maintenance, defects in an escalator's installation, or product flaws. An escalator's main function is to provide safe and efficient means of transportation between the floors of a building. Escalator accidents can potentially cause a person pain, suffering, and/or permanent emotional and physical damage.
Escalator Accident Prevention
It is the duty and obligation of a local Phoenix business to ensure the safety of all people who use their escalators. The following are a couple necessary actions a business should take in order to prevent an escalator accident.
- In order to make certain the escalator is working properly before use, a certified escalator inspector should examine whether or not the escalator meets all safety codes and regulations of the State.
- Employees of the building should also periodically check to see if maintenance is required to avoid any unnecessary accidents.
If caution and awareness are not a business or building's main priorities, then an escalator accident injury or death will likely ensue.
