When You Sustain Injuries in a Pennsylvania Elevator Shaft Accident (Part B)

Third Party Liability in an Elevator Shaft Accident

A third party liability claim may be sought for injuries you have sustained in an elevator shaft accident if there is evidence that another party may be at least partially responsible for your construction accident.

A third party liability claim may be filed against a manufacturer who has done any of the following:
 

  • produced equipment with defects or flaws such as faulty elevator cables or improperly working doors;
  • failed to include safety mechanisms;
  • failed to inspect or test elevators before putting them on the market; and
  • failed to provide warnings of any hazards related to the elevator shaft.  


Additionally, a third party claim may be filed against a contractor or general contractor, someone who is not your employer and who was negligent in some manner.
This could include a failure to make sure working conditions are safe, failing to use proper equipment or implementing dangerous work practices.

A third party claim could also be filed against a maintenance company if there was a failure to properly maintain and repair any malfunctioning equipment in the elevator shaft. 

With all of the possibilities, it is best to speak with a Philadelphia construction accident lawyer who can thoroughly investigate your case to determine if you have a valid Pennsylvania construction accident claim.
