If you look at the number of injury producing incidents which occur on escalators, it’s quite shocking. All to often, people are put at risk by poorly maintained escalators, and the results can be catastrophic.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
Rad Law Firm is now actively investigating a number of accident cases occurring at Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport and other airports in the past few years. Airports can be dangerous to public safety, with one of the reasons behind these injuries cited as the swarming crowds. Most of these accidents occur during peak hours, with an agitated hustle in getting on and off the escalators and the increased luggage contributing to obstacles in the passengers' path.
An airport is responsible for the smooth operation of all escalators on their premises; there should not be any abrupt halts that can cause people to lose their balance and take a fall. A malfunctioning escalator can suck in shoe laces and trailing items of clothing on the passengers' bodies, causing them to trip and sometimes leading to severe injury or even death. Every airport is bound to allocate dedicated staff for preventive maintenance on these machines, with checks being carried out at least 70% of the time, and their stand-by presence required around the clock for immediately correcting any malfunctioning parts.
As is common in escalator injury cases, the personal injury attorneys are not only investigating the airport as the party having control of the premises, but also the party or parties responsible for the inspection, maintenance and repairs of the escalators. The firm has litigated escalator accidents against DFW airport in the past and also has current claims against DFW airport and others.
"If you look at the number of injury producing incidents which occur on escalators, it’s quite shocking. All to often, people are put at risk by poorly maintained escalators, and the results can be catastrophic" said Daryoush Toofanian, Attorney at Rad Law Firm.
