For most people, elevators are a source of great convenience. Instead of scaling many flights of stairs, you can go to higher levels in a building with comfort and without physical stress. However, if an elevator is poorly installed or maintained, it can be a potential source of significant injury, and even death. If you or a loved one has been injured because of the malfunction or poor maintenance of an elevator, you want an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you pursue full damages for your losses.

At Weber & Nierenberg, we bring almost 30 years of experience to people throughout the San Francisco Bay area and northern California. We have always put a premium on personal service and attention, working directly with you throughout your case, from your first meeting to the resolution of your claim. We offer the flexibility and prompt response you expect from a small law practice with the experience and resources customarily found only at a large law firm. We combine our experience with the skill and breadth of knowledge developed over a quarter of a century in practice.

Experienced California Elevator Accident Injury Lawyers

We provide comprehensive counsel to people who have been hurt in an elevator accident, gathering and evaluating all relevant evidence, and working with expert witnesses, when necessary, to put together the best case for your recovery. We will prepare and file your complaint, as well as any other documents required to get compensation for your losses. We will also be your advocate in all hearings or proceedings, including depositions, settlement conferences and trial.

We handle all types of elevator accident injury claims, including cases involving:

  • Failure by the owner, operator or installer to properly level the elevator—This can result in the floor of the elevator being higher or lower than the floor in the building, leading to tripping accidents
  • Defective or poorly maintained elevator doors—The doors may be set to close too quickly, or may open while the elevator is between floors, which can lead to serious falls, and even death.
  • Poor maintenance—The owner or operator may fail to have regular inspections, or may fail to properly respond to complaints or concerns about the operation of the elevator. This may result in damage to cables or other serious conditions that can result in injury.
