Elevator / Lift Compensation Claims Information

Elevators are hard-wearing pieces of machinery which are essential to most of our daily lives. Whether you work in a tall office building or live in an apartment – or even regularly park in a multi-storey – riding in a lift can be a daily occurrence. The building’s owners have a duty to ensure that all lifts and elevators run as smoothly as possible. If you’ve suffered any kind of injury due to a poorly maintained elevator, you need to get in touch with Tylers Solicitors today. We can work with you to make lift injury compensation claims, including compensation for being stuck in a lift.

If you’ve suffered any kind of lift injury, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Tylers Solicitors today.
