Elevators and escalators are a routine part of our lives. Every day, there are thousands of people ride escalators to transport them from floor to floor inside department stores, subways, train stations and other places. Elevator hoists are used in the construction industry also. However, the worst part is when something goes wrong, it can be responsible for devastating injuries. That is, any failure in the chain, driver, rope, cord, line or pulley can result in catastrophic or even fatal accidents.
Mainly hoist accidents are caused by the inappropriate servicing or installation of the hoist equipment which could have been detected by the performance of proper inspection, servicing, and maintenance.
PURSUING COMPENSATION FOR A HOIST ACCIDENT
There are numerous parties responsible for the safety of hoisting equipment. If you were injured in a hoisting accident, and want to file a claim against the responsible party, it is important that there be a record of the following:
