Worker Dies in Elevator Accident

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 27-Nov-2010

Reports say a person working on an elevator inside a South Miami Beach condominium were injured - one fatally - while working on the elevator.

The accident occurred when an unidentified workman was inside the elevator as another climbed out of the top of the elevator, into the shaft to fix an unknown problem. The elevator then began to operate, causing the worker to be crushed between the shaft wall and the elevator between the fifth and sixth floors, reports say.

The worker's body allegedly remained wedged in the shaft for over three hours following the fatal accident before emergency crews could remove it. An investigation was continuing.

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.
