Freight Elevator Falls 3 Floors, New York Personal Injury Lawyer Says Elevator Accidents More Common Than People Think


New York personal injury lawyer David Perecman comments on a freight elevator accident in Chelsea, New York. The elevator accident occurred at the Bed, Bath and Beyond on Sixth Avenue near West 19th Street.

According to the New York Post, an elevator malfunctioned and crashed into a basement. Four people were seriously hurt and ten others suffered minor injuries in the New York elevator accident.

The Buildings Department discovered that a faulty elevator brake was defective, which caused the elevator accident. Because the freight elevator was not even supposed to be carrying passengers, the DOB issued a violation to the owner.

Who is held liable for injuries and deaths sustained in a New York elevator accident usually depends on the circumstances surrounding the incident.

New York personal injury lawyers at The Perecman Firm have more than thirty years of experience representing elevator accident victims throughout New York.
