Elevator & Escalator Accident Claims
Skilled Dallas Premises Liability Attorneys
When organizations decide to locate their operations in multistory buildings they also decide to accept the responsibility to operate the building's elevators and escalators in a safe manner. When buildings owners fail in their legal duty to keep their premises safe, they are liable for injuries that occur on their property.
Other parties that may be held liable in these types of accidents:
- Elevator / escalator maintenance companies
- Elevator / escalator manufacturers
- Installation company for the elevator / escalator
- Property manager or on-site maintenance team
At Scott H. Palmer, P.C., we have handled hundreds of premises liability cases in the Dallas-Fort Worth area over the course of our nearly 45 years of combined legal practice. We know how to quickly begin an investigation and identify all potentially negligent parties involved.

Proven Experience in Elevator Cases
Our client was in a Dallas County building when the elevator she was in stopped suddenly then opened, leaving a two-to-three-inch rise in the floor as she left the elevator. The malfunction led to a serious back injury and the need for back surgery.
We accepted the case and immediately began a comprehensive investigation that included a review of elevator maintenance records. Our investigation revealed negligence on the part of both Dallas County and the elevator manufacturer. This led to a successful outcome on behalf of our injured client.
