Grand Prix Driver Falls In Elevator Accident

Grand Prix Driver Falls In Elevator Accident

Legendary Grand Prix driver Sir Stirling Moss reportedly stepped into an elevator to descend three stories - only to find the elevator was not present. He fell three stories to the bottom of the elevator shaft. He was injured, but survived.

Reports say the driver, whose career ended with a horrific crash in the '50s, was in fantastic condition which likely saved him from serious injury. The elevator he had summoned had actually stopped on the fourth floor, and when the door opened the elevator was not present. He stepped in and fell the three floors to the bottom. His wife, who was with him, didn't follow immediately and managed to avoid the fall.


Moss has been confined to a wheelchair, but is expected to make a full recovery. It is his sixth or seventh time in a wheelchair - the others coming from accidents which occurred in his time as a racecar driver.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
