Lombard Escalator Accident Attorney

Shopping Mall Injury Lawyers Serving DuPage County

There are thousands of escalators in buildings throughout Illinois. Most of the time, these mechanisms operate smoothly. However, when something goes wrong, it can lead to accidents with serious injuries and even wrongful deaths. If you or a loved one has suffered injury due to an escalator accident, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney so you understand your rights.

The attorneys at Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices have over 200 years of combined experience representing victims of escalator accidents in the Chicago area and throughout Illinois. We have extensive knowledge of these and other premises liability cases and what it takes to prevail against well-funded adversaries such as commercial building and retail store owners, escalator manufacturers and their insurers. We are skilled litigators inside the courtroom and strong negotiators outside of court and we work tirelessly to secure just compensation for our clients.

Our attorneys are honest, compassionate, responsive, and accessible. We are straightforward and down to earth, and we work hard to make your experience with us as smooth and seamless as possible. We offer free consultations, extended evening and weekend hours, 3 locations in the local area, and regular updates on the progress of your case. In addition, we handle all our personal injury cases on a contingency basis, so you never have to pay upfront attorney fees.

Common Causes of Escalator Accidents in Illinois

The state of Illinois has several regulations governing the design, installation, and maintenance of escalators. Accidents on escalators often occur because of failure to comply with these regulations. Some of the common causes for such accidents include:

  • Improper installation;
  • Missing side panels and other missing parts;
  • Malfunctioning parts;
  • Insufficient maintenance, inspections, and repairs;
  • Sudden starts and stops;
  • Side entrapments; and
  • End plate entrapments.

Unfortunately, young children and the elderly are particularly susceptible to escalator accidents. Even when functioning properly, escalators pose an inherent danger because of their continually disappearing landing platform. Small children have a hard time holding onto the rails and sometimes get their shoes and feet entrapped in the sides of the escalator. Slips and falls are more common with the elderly as they reach the top or bottom plate. Escalators have been in existence since the late 1800s. However, their design has not changed much since then. It seems the only way to motivate manufacturers to come up with a safer design is to hold them fully accountable for the countless injuries that occur on escalators each year.

At Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices, we understand the physical, emotional and financial toll a personal injury can have on you and your family. We put our experience to work to give you the skilled legal representation you deserve, so you can focus on your recovery.
