Elevator Accident Attorney In Orange County

Elevator Elevator accidents happen more often than most of us might think, especially in Southern California where new high rise buildings are being built every day. Whether an elevator is used in a building with 5, 10, 50 or even 100 floors, it involves an extensive network that requires constant monitoring and maintenance. Although new technology allows for safer elevators than before, many people are still injured in elevator accidents.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an elevator accident, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. The Orange County elevator accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Samer Habbas can help you hold the responsible parties accountable for their negligence and help you obtain the full damages that you deserve.

Statistics of Elevator Accidents

While city and state officials are fairly diligent in inspecting elevators, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is not authorized to regulate elevators as it does other products. As such, elevators and their parts are not subject to federal accident inspections or recall of parts. Without regulation, elevator defects, accidents, and statistics are not widely available.

However, even though there may be no regulation or readily available accident statistics, elevator accidents nevertheless happen. When an individual is injured in an elevator accident, the result is often tragic and even fatal. Most of these reported accidents are caused by the victims being struck by an object of some sort of from the fall.

Common Causes of Elevator Accidents

Many factors can be responsible for an elevator accident. The common causes of elevator accidents include:

  • Mislevel – the floor of the elevator not meeting up with the floor of the building
  • Elevator coming to a sudden stop
  • Defective controller or regulators
  • Inadequate lighting or slipper surfaces resulting in slip and fall accidents in elevators
  • Getting stuck – often between floors
  • Swinging doors that close too quickly
  • Elevator being in a state of disrepair or poorly maintained

Regardless of what caused your elevator accident, you need to take the important steps to protect your legal rights.

I was in an accident a week before Christmas, my car was totaled and my arm was broken in several places. Therefore I was in need of a couple of pretty serious surgeries. Having never been in a car accident and being completely lost as to where I even begin, I was referred to Samer' Law Firm by a co-worker. Within hours of being released from the hospital they had sent someone to my home to take a statement, to began what was a seamless process that surprisingly required very little from me which I was thankful for considering I was out of work for the next 5 weeks with my injuries. I worked closely with Selena Bazan and Mike Habbas, they were both extremely patient in explaining what was completely a foreign process to me. Throughout the entire case I had plenty of questions or needed clarification, they were a phone call or email away to answer and to take the time to explain any and everything to me in detail and address any concern I had. Even when returning back to work if there was something that needed to be taken care of in person they came to me at my office. I was warned by several people who have been in accidents how matters like this can take months on months, even years. As of today my case is resolved! While maintaining professionalism and ensuring that I knew how important my case was to them, I always felt as though they genuinely cared for my well-being and that I received both the medical attention, after care and compensation I deserved. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and the treatment that I received from Samer habbas and more
