Elevator accidents are unfortunately all too common in New York City. In fact, there are an average of 30 elevator accidents every day in the city. And while most of these accidents are minor, some can be quite serious – even fatal.
There are a number of different ways that elevator accidents can occur. Here are the most common:
Unexpected Doors Opening
One of the most common is when the elevator doors open unexpectedly and someone falls out. This can happen if the door sensors are not working properly or if the doors are not properly aligned.
Getting Stuck in the Elevator
Another common type of accident occurs when someone gets stuck in the elevator doors and is crushed. This can also happen if the doors are not properly aligned or if the sensors are not working properly.
Elevator Falls Unexpectedly
Finally, another type of accident that can occur is when the elevator itself falls. This can be due to a number of different factors, including mechanical failure or human error.
