Compensation for a public elevator malfunction

In general, using an elevator is perfectly safe and they can be relied upon to support great weights on a regular basis. As well as this they are a very useful means of transporting your goods to areas and levels that previously would have been inaccessible such as in work, shops and supermarkets, airports, hotels and car parks. Unfortunately however, mistakes can happen and as a result you may become seriously injured if the machinery is not correctly maintained and checked for safety.

It is the responsibility of the owner of the property to ensure that the machinery is maintained to a high standard and that it can perform tasks that it is required to do, so if you feel that this hasn’t been the case and you have been injured then you could be able to make a claim for compensation. It is imperative that stores or other such places provide you with safe equipment, so if this isn’t the case then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.
