About lift accidents

Although lift accidents are rare, they can potentially cause severe psychological and physical damage. When a lift is not safely maintained or is faulty, it can become dangerous for the people using it. A claim for compensation can be brought when it can be proven that a lift that caused an injury was poorly maintained, neglected or malfunctioning.

In public places, such as schools, supermarkets, shopping centres, apartment buildings and hotels, certain standards of safety checks should be carried out on all elevators by a trained professional.

Who is responsible?

The owner of the lift or the person responsible for its operation has a legal responsibility to ensure its safety and maintenance. While only qualified professionals should carry out lift inspections, they are legally obliged to inform the owner if they detect any fault. Inspections should be documented and made available should they be required. Once a problem has been detected, the duty holder should immediately take it out of action until the fault has been rectified.

Should a lift become unsafe, either through inaction or poor maintenance, this could lead to serious injury. When an injury happens, the management of the lift or public place are liable for the accident.
