SHOULD I HIRE A NEW YORK CITY & WESTCHESTER COUNTY DEFECTIVE ELEVATOR ACCIDENTS LAWYER?
Elevator accidents are among the most jarring, and potentially devastating, types of accidents. In many cases, elevator accidents involve doors opening or closing at the wrong times, traveling at unsafe speeds, or even falling multiple stories. If you’ve been hurt as a passenger in an elevator accident, you need a competent New York City & Westchester County personal injury attorney on your side.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR AN ELEVATOR ACCIDENT?
When a passenger is harmed in an elevator accident, they are almost never to blame. Elevator malfunctions frequently occur either on the watch of a negligent property owner, defective elevator parts, or negligent elevator servicemen. That being said, if we can prove that your accident happened because a property owner either knew or should have known about the unsafe elevator conditions and failed to have them fixed timely, we will most likely file a premises liability claim. On the other hand, if we can prove that your injuries were the result of a defective elevator part, we may sue either the product designer or manufacturer in a product liability claim.
As long as we can satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, you should receive financial compensation. This compensation is meant to help offset the physical, financial, and emotional burdens you’ve endured because of your accident. This compensation can help cover the cost of lost past and future wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, disfigurement, the loss of enjoyment of life, emotional trauma, and more.
STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS
The statute of limitations for most personal injury claims in New York State is three years, which, simply put, means that you cannot wait longer than three years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible for your injuries. Waiting longer than three years will most likely relinquish your right to sue. The sooner you schedule your initial consultation with our legal team, the better off you will be.

José Báez is an excellent Attorney. He helped me through one of the toughest times in my life. He gave me support and was very professional and of high quality. José was always accessible and always returns my calls without delay. I just can’t say enough about José Báez. Anybody who’s been injured in a truck accident, or any other accident should definitely hire José Báez. I strongly recommend Mr. Báez.

Not only have I had the pleasure of working alongside Jose, but I’ve also been on the receiving end of his handling of the transference of my father’s estate. Jose and the Baez Legal Group demonstrated a kind of versatility, accountability, and dedication rarely seen outside of large international law firms. He handles a wide variety of cases with seeming ease, often surprising both his clients and I with the scope of his knowledge of different legal disciplines. Jose is not one of the myriads of lawyers that always seem too busy to allocate the proper amount of care and time to their clients; in fact, he was often in the habit of reaching out first, even if just to see how we’re doing. Should you wish to receive an unprecedented amount of excellence in the handling of your case, the Baez Legal Group should be your first and only resort.

Jose stuck with me in a very difficult case that many other lawyers would not even take on. It was a three-year battle and luckily with Jose’s help I was not charged criminally. Jose pays very close attention to details and his responses to the opposing side were thorough and full of substance.
