Elevators are designed to be accommodating, make life a little easier, and benefit those who are unable to use stairs. However, when elevators malfunction, they can cause devastating injuries and can occur at any time. If you suffered critical injuries in an elevator accident, you may be entitled to total compensation for your damages.

Causes of Elevator Accidents in Las Vegas

Elevators may seem like harmless and useful pieces of equipment. However, they are known for causing serious injuries. Elevator accidents can happen in a number of ways, some of which are caused by:

  • Out-of-service elevators are still operational
  • Employees of on-site elevators are not properly trained for their use
  • Failure to provide fall protection
  • Failure to inspect the elevator
  • Failure to provide elevator maintenance
  • Failure to provide barriers that would prevent falls down elevator shafts

Let us evaluate your situation and determine the best path to take to help you achieve your goals. Give our auto injury attorneys a call today at (360) 200-0000.

It should be noted that children have been known to suffer critical injuries after being involved in elevator accidents.

  • The defendant made a decision or failed to make a decision that resulted in a breach in their duty of care
  • The defendant’s breach is responsible for causing an elevator accident

Statute of Limitations for Elevator Injury Claims in Las Vegas

Elevator injury claims and personal injury claims across Las Vegas have a strict NRS § 11.190(4)(e). Under Nevada law, these claims must be filed before the statute of limitations expires. Generally, the law states that you will have two years to get your claim filed before this deadline runs out. 

However, every person’s case is different. Some may not be clear exactly when the statute of limitation deadline is for their case. Others may be under the impression that they have much more time to pursue their case than they actually do. It is important to take steps to pursue your case in a timely manner. 

Do not put your compensation at risk by delaying legal action. If your claim is not filed before the deadline, Las Vegas civil courts will not be able to hear your case. Thankfully, when you have an elevator injury attorney working on your case, you do not need to worry about the statute of limitations negatively impacting your ability to recover the compensation you deserve.
