Experienced Elevator and Escalator Injury Attorneys

Representing Clients in Pennsylvania and New Jersey

In most cities today, it’s difficult to go much of anywhere without encountering an elevator or an escalator. If you live or work in a high-rise, you may have to take an elevator or an escalator a number of times every day. When they work properly, you don’t give them a second thought. But they are complex mechanical devices, requiring regular maintenance and upkeep, and can pose serious risk of injury if not properly inspected and maintained. If you or someone you love has been hurt in an accident involving an escalator or elevator, the experienced lawyers at the Law Offices of Fritz & Bianculli can help protect your rights.

At Fritz & Bianculli, we have successfully the rights of personal injury victims in Pennsylvania and New Jersey for more than 15 years. We understand that a personal injury is just what the term indicates—it’s personal. It affects every aspect of your personal life, and its impact is different for everyone. We take a results-oriented approach, always striving to get full and fair compensation for all your injuries. Our attorneys will take the time to get to know you personally, to learn how your injury has changed your life, and to determine exactly what you need to move forward with your life.

We offer a free initial case evaluation to every prospective client. Contact us by e-mail or call our office at 215-458-2222, even if your case has been turned down by another law firm. Some of our largest settlements and verdicts have been in cases that were initially rejected by other attorneys.

Aggressive Representation When You Have Been Hurt in an Elevator or Escalator Accident

We protect the rights of people who have been hurt in any type of elevator accident, including:

  • Accidents caused by elevators that suddenly stopped or dropped
  • Accidents involving elevator doors opened when the elevator was not there
  • Accidents involving elevators that stopped between floors
  • Injuries caused when elevator doors would not open
  • Crush injuries when an elevator falls multiple floors at once

We also fight for the rights of people hurt in escalator accidents, such as:

  • Getting clothing or body parts caught in a moving escalator
  • Being thrown when an escalator suddenly stops or lurches
  • Falls caused by handrails that suddenly stop, or by inadequate guard rails
  • So-called “comb plate” accidents, where body parts get caught between the moving part of the escalator and the stationary plate as riders step off the escalator
  • Injuries caused by broken or missing steps

Our lawyers litigate claims involving all types of injury, from sprains and strains to serious and catastrophic loss, such as broken bones, paralysis, spinal cord or traumatic brain injury, permanent scarring or disfigurement, burns and amputation or loss of limb. We also take wrongful death claims arising out of an elevator or escalator accident.
