Defective Elevator

Walkup Melodia’s premises liability lawyers obtained a $4.5 million settlement on behalf of an 80-year-old woman who attempted to board an elevator and tripped because the floor had “misleveled” and was higher than the floor of the adjacent lobby. She fell forward and struck her head on the back of the elevator and suffered partial paralysis as a result. With workers’ compensation benefits, our client’s total recovery was $5.3 million.
