Dallas Elevator and Escalator Injuries Lawyers

Elevators and escalators are responsible for injuring tens of thousands of people each year. Usually, these injuries could have been prevented by performing regular equipment maintenance or making regular inspections. Property owners have a duty to inspect and repair their elevators and escalators. A premises liability claim may be brought to hold these property owners responsible for injuries that occurred on their watch.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an elevator or escalator accident, you may be eligible to recover compensation for your injuries and other damages. At The Benton Law Firm, we have knowledgeable attorneys who can help you get the money you deserve for your claim. Contact us today to talk to one of our Dallas elevator and escalator injury attorneys at (214) 777-7777 or online to set up a free consultation.

Why Do I Need a Lawyer?

A lawyer will protect your needs and interests as you fight to get the compensation you deserve after an elevator or escalator accident. These claims can be very complicated because they involve many parties, including the property owners, business owners, equipment manufacturers, maintenance workers, insurance companies, and more. This can be overwhelming, especially if you are still recovering from your injuries. An experienced Dallas premises liability attorney from The Benton Law Firm can represent your direct interests in conversations with all of the responsible parties so that your claim gets the attention it deserves.

Insurance companies love to talk to injured victims who do not have attorneys because they know that they have a better chance of persuading them to take a low settlement offer. Do not let the insurance companies take advantage of your situation. A personal injury lawyer from The Benton Law Firm will talk to the insurance company on your behalf so that you are protected. We work with the insurance companies all the time, which means that we know when to accept a settlement and when to fight for a better offer.

You may have heard of the statute of limitations, another element of legal proceedings that is best managed by an attorney. The statute of limitations is actually a set of laws that govern how soon you must make a claim before you lose your ability to recover. In most situations, the Texas statute of limitations for personal injuries is two years from the date of the injury, but exceptions can apply. Some insurance companies can also require a shorter window of time to make a claim. An attorney from The Benton Law Firm will know how to keep your claim on track, so you don’t need to worry.
