Individuals who work on elevators and in elevator shafts for a living are regularly exposed to a number of hazards while on the job. While there are a number of laws and safety regulations that are meant to keep working environments safe for these individuals, the sad reality is that in far too many instances, these regulations are not followed or upheld, resulting in dangerous working conditions and serious injuries. While it may be possible for injured workers to pursue workers’ compensation benefits to cover the costs of their injuries, unfortunately, this amount of compensation may not be enough to cover a victim’s full range of financial needs. In these situations, an injured worker may be able to file a personal injury claim to pursue the full compensation they need.
