Elevators are a common part of our lives, which is why we rarely expect accidents or injuries to happen when boarding one. Nevertheless, if you have been injured in an elevator accident, you are very likely to be seriously injured and require financial compensation as well. Please continue to read on and speak with the Bryant Law Firm to learn more, as we are vastly experienced with these types of cases.
What Are The Most Likely Causes of Elevator Accidents?
Elevator accidents are caused for many different reasons, such as electrocutions, sudden starts and stops, operator errors, driver malfunctions, missing/defective parts, negligent elevator maintenance, and more. If any of the above factors caused your injury, you could qualify for compensation.
How Will I Know If I Am Entitled to Compensation After An Elevator Accident?
To be awarded damages in any personal injury case, you must hire a lawyer that can satisfy the burden of proof. Your lawyer should be capable of proving you were injured due to another party’s negligence. This may seem very simple; however, elevator accidents often are not. Your lawyer will have to prove the responsible party first.
How Long Do I Have To Sue After Being Injured In An Accident In Alabama?
In Alabama, the statute of limitations for premise liability lawsuits is two years. This means you have two years from the date of your incident to bring legal action against a negligent party. It is important to avoid the mistake of waiting to file. The quicker you bring your accident to our firm’s attention, the better.
