According to the CDC, elevators and escalators kill around 30 people and seriously injure another 17,000 every year.

MAIN CAUSES FOR ESCALATOR INJURIES

There are a number of factors that can lead to escalator injuries and each case has its own unique set of facts. But the most common causes for escalator injuries are due to slip/trip and falls, poor maintenance, and defective equipment.

The following escalator accidents can lead to serious injuries:

  • Defective steps;
  • Wet surfaces;
  • Poorly designed handrails;
  • Poorly maintained handrails;
  • Metal teeth of the escalator catching fingers, toes, or clothing; and
  • Malfunctioning equipment causing the escalator to jerk or come to a sudden stop.

These accidents are most often the result of property owners or maintenance companies’ failure to properly inspect, maintain or repair the escalators on their property. Property owners and maintenance companies have a duty to guest and invitees to ensure that the escalators on the premises have no defects or dangers that could cause injury. When they breached that duty, serious injury can result and they can be held liable.
