Child Injured in Escalator Accident

Child Injured in Escalator Accident

A toddler became seriously injured earlier this year when his left leg became trapped between the escalator skirt and the side of escalator while descending the escalator.

The accident, which occurred when the unnamed child somehow caught his foot in the device and then was pulled into the side of the steps of the conveyance, left the child with injuries to both legs. But the end result was serious injuries to his trapped leg, with some parts of his leg being broken and the skin being ripped off as well.

It is unknown whether or not doctors were able to save the leg. An investigation was continuing to discover the exact cause of the accident.  Make sure the shoes laces are tight and shoes used are appropriate when taking escalator.

  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.
