Denver Personal Injury Attorney
Although elevators were made to assist us in many ways, in some cases, accidents occur. Elevator related injuries happen more often than most people think. A sudden stop, the closing of doors or a malfunction can lead to a serious personal injury.
In the U.S., close to 11,000 people are seriously injured annually in elevator related accidents, and close to 2,000 are young children and teenagers. Some of the serious personal injuries that occur in elevator accidents include:
* Head trauma
* Back or spinal cord injury
* Broken or fractured bones
* Cuts, bruises, sprains
* Torn ligaments
Unfortunately, in worse cases, an elevator-related accident can result in a fatal injury. Children under 5 years of age are among the most vulnerable.
If you or your child has been seriously injured in an elevator accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for injuries and damages. Make sure you speak with an experienced Denver personal injury attorney who can investigate your case and seek the compensation you deserve.
