Lift accident compensation advice

If you need lift accident compensation advice, The Injury lawyers can help you because we specialise in all areas of personal injury compensation.

Thanks to rigorous health and safety legislation, lift accident compensation claims should be minimal, but when something does go wrong – whether it’s at work, or in a public building – victims can be entitled to claim for personal injury damages caused by injury and loss.

For advice, you should always contact our team for help, but we can give you a little guidance in this article in the meantime.

If you’re reading this as a victim of a serious incident, or on behalf of someone in a serious or fatal incident, please contact our Catastrophic Claims Team for tailored advice and help when you can.

Lift accident compensation claims

If you’ve been injured as a result of an elevator, you may be able to make a lift accident compensation claim. Whether you can claim or not comes down to how you were injured and whether your accident was preventable.

If the lift was defective in some way, and it was the defect that has caused the injury or contributed to the injury, you may have a cause of action in law. Proving this can be difficult and can depend on whether the accident happened in a public setting or at work.

Work lift accident compensation advice

An elevator in a workplace can be classed as work equipment, whether it’s a static one, a ‘dumb waiter’, or some form of platform. If you have an accident as an employee because of dangerous or defective work equipment, where a lift falls within this category, you can claim under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations.

Your employer is responsible for your safety, so whether it’s down to defective equipment or it’s a training issue, you may have a storing work accident claim as the law is usually on the employee’s side.

Public lift accident compensation advice

When it comes to a public lift accident compensation claim, a case can be harder to prove, as you normally have to show that whoever is responsible for the lift – be it a building owner or a business using the lift – has failed in their duty of care to take all reasonable steps to ensure you’re safe. This usually falls within the remit of the Occupiers Liability Act, and the defence to such a claim is where a Defendant can show they have taken all reasonable steps to ensure your safety.

If the lift is defective and they knew about it, or where a lift has been left in disrepair or where safety warnings and instructions are inadequate, you may have a case.
