Elevator/Escalator Accidents

Las Vegas Elevator and Escalator Injury Lawyer

Representing Clients Injured in Nevada Elevator and Escalator Accidents

Las Vegas is home to some of the largest hotels and casinos in the country. Due to their expansive size, these hotels and casinos include a number of elevators and escalators to allow guests and patrons to move easily around the facility. In fact, most multi-story buildings – including hotels, casinos, office buildings, apartment buildings, and condos – include elevators and escalators so that people can move between floors efficiently.

While elevators and escalators significantly improve the way in which we are able to move through and around buildings, they are not without risks and hazards. When an accident occurs on an elevator or escalator, the property owner/manager or equipment manufacturer can be held liable for any resulting injuries or damages.

For more than 30 years, Las Vegas accident and injury lawyer Robert M. Apple has focused on helping clients who are injured in slip and fall accidents – including those that happen on elevators, escalators, and stairways – obtain maximum money damages for their injuries and damages.
