Elevator Accidents

Elevator accidents in buildings in Boston and elsewhere in Massachusetts can result in serious injuries. At the Massachusetts law office of Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry, our Cambridge lawyers have successfully represented people injured in elevator accidents and other construction accidents in the state. Whether the accident was caused as a result of improper maintenance or negligence, negligent property owners can and should be held responsible.

Property owners need to take reasonable measures to prevent elevator accidents. This includes making sure that elevators are running safely, even when they contract the maintenance of their elevators out to third-party companies. When these measures are not taken, it is important to speak with an experienced attorney to determine what compensation you may be entitled to receive and from whom you should pursue that compensation.
