Manhattan elevator accident lawyer Samantha Kucher releases a new article (https://www.rrklawgroup.com/elevator-accident-lawyer/) that discusses the common causes of elevator accidents in New York. The lawyer mentions that New York City is home to approximately 84,000 elevators. However, not all these elevators can be considered safe.

According to the Manhattan elevator accident lawyer, "Although most municipal and state governments are fairly good at ensuring elevator oversight, here in New York, we have seen many tragedies as a result of ineffective safety standards. Until recently, New York was one of the few states that did not require that those who worked on elevators be licensed or even properly trained or educated.”

The lawyer explains that New York has recently adopted the Elevator Safety Act. It requires that all people involved in the design and operation of an elevator must have a license. There is also an advisory board created to advise on regulations and best practices for New York's elevator inspections.

Attorney Kucher also addresses the main causes behind elevator accidents. These accidents include door defects where people could be trapped, sudden acceleration/deceleration or stops, elevator falls and misalignment, as well as falling into an unprotected shaft.

In the article, the accident attorney says that elevators or escalators are large machinery pieces that need hundreds of precisely-tuned mechanisms in order to function properly together. Users who don't know about the dangers presented by any malfunctioning or breaking of any one of these mechanisms may be seriously injured.

“Although the steps may seem simple and straightforward, proving negligence can be complicated. The building owner or controlling party and their insurance company may try to pin the blame on you for the accident. Insurance companies also often make it very difficult to get fairly compensated and may try to deny or minimize your settlement. This is when you need our experienced New York elevator attorney fighting on your behalf,” says the personal injury attorney.

Lastly, the accident attorney emphasizes that it is very important to seek the guidance of an experienced lawyer when seeking compensation. A skilled lawyer may be able to help the victim understand their rights and may be able to help them achieve a good outcome for their case.
