Escalator Defects & Maintenance Problems Cause Accidents
When escalators are designed or assembled improperly, or parts wear out and are not replaced, there can be a major risk of crush injuries, loss of fingers and toes, and other serious injuries. If you are dealing with this situation, you need to seek compensation.
Some of the most dangerous circumstances associated with escalators include:
- Excessive gaps between adjacent steps
- Comb plates that are misaligned or have broken or missing teeth
- Failure to automatically stop when something gets wedged in
- Insufficient warnings about hazards to children
