Elevator & Escalator Accidents in Austin, Texas


While elevators and escalators are relatively safe systems and most Austin residents utilize them without incident, an alarming number of people are injured in elevators and on escalators every year. The elderly and the very young make up a disproportionate percentage of these accidents. In fact, between 1990 and 2005, around 40,000 elderly people and 29,000 children were hospitalized for elevator and escalator accidents. Typically, these types of accidents are the result of poor maintenance or design.

Elevator and Escalator Injuries


Elevator accidents can be particularly dangerous for any Austin-area child or elderly resident, as freefall poses a number of serious risks. Poor maintenance or a number of design flaws may contribute to one of the following dangerous situations:

  • Elevator freefall resulting from mechanical failure
  • Falls resulting from open elevator doors or exposed elevator due to mechanical failure
  • Misalignment of elevator as doors open
  • Electrocution from faulty or exposed wiring
  • Poorly adjusted sensors, causing doors to close on an individual

While Austin elevator accidents may be devastating, Austin escalator accidents also pose a number of potential hazards likely to arise from lack of proper maintenance or inherent flaws in design.
