Compensation for a private elevator malfunction

Elevators are not just a luxury piece of machinery that helps save us a few seconds and energy that we would exhaust while climbing up a flight of stairs, they are often essential for disabled people who are unable to carry out basic activities such as gaining access to their workplace, shopping or even using a multi-storey car park. If you have suffered an accident while using a private elevator which has malfunctioned then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer or the owner of the property to ensure that it is in full-working order, so if you believe that your health has been put at risk because of an inability to do this then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.
