You may have had an accident in a lift or on an escalator, or in a public place and be looking for an accident solicitor in Ivybridge in your local telephone directory. You may also have looked online for an accident solicitor in Ivybridge and you may or may not have been successful. If you have had an accident which was no fault of yours, and sustained an injury then you could have grounds for making a personal injury compensation claim.

Accidents in lifts and on escalators

Lifts and escalators are essential for people of limited mobility to get around large department stores and shopping centres. They aren’t simply luxuries for the lazy. Wherever there is a lift or escalator, the owners of the premises in which one is located are responsible for its maintenance.

There are several types of accidents which can occur in lifts; doors may close on you, and a lift might suddenly stop between floors. If the lift stops abruptly, then any passengers could be jolted and fall to the floor, or against the walls of the lift. Perhaps the lift stopped and inch or two from the floor level and you didn’t notice and fell. The worst possible kind of accidents involving lifts are falling down a lift shaft while inside a lift.

Escalators can also be hazardous as they might trap someone’s limb and this could be pulled into the escalator.

If you have an accident in a shop, car park or other place because of travelling in a lift or on an escalator, then you should report the accident to a member of staff and ensure that it is recorded in the accident book. You also need to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Failure to do so may weaken your personal injury compensation claim.
