Elevator Accidents

With over half a million elevators in America, passenger safety should be a critical concern for manufacturers and building owners. Unfortunately, they are often more concerned with making a profit and avoiding expenses. As such, many elevators use defective equipment or suffer from sub-par elevator maintenance with disastrous consequences.
