Faulty elevator causes permanent injuries.
A property owner noticed a loud crashing noise when a load shifted in his elevator. Afterwards, the doors did not seem to function normally—they were tight and hard to open. The property owner did not routinely maintain the elevator, nor did he contract with anyone else to do it, so the defendant property owner did not realize that the door locking device had broken.
A few weeks later, our client, a visitor to the building, pushed the elevator button, waited for the doors to open, and stepped through the door assuming the elevator was there. In fact it was on a higher floor at the time, and our client fell 15 feet sustaining permanent and debilitating injuries. Kolsby Gordon represented the injured visitor in achieving a six-figure settlement to compensate him for lost wages, medical care, and pain and suffering.
