Most often, elevator accidents are due to poor maintenance, defective manufacturing, or user negligence. When an elevator accident occurs, the Perazzo Law Firm's staff of personal injury attorneys has the skills and dedication for determining fault for the elevator accident. If and when fault can be proven and a case presented against a manufacturer, service provider, or third party wrongdoer, a compensation claim for injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, etc., can be presented to the responsible party's insurance provider.
