If your elevator was defective and you are hurt there is likely a personal injury case. If possible take pictures of the elevator and the problem. You should next seek medical care for your injuries. Normally there is a significant injury as a result of a defective elevator so make sure to tell your doctors everything that is wrong. A personal injury lawyer is the type of lawyer you want to hire. Do not speak to the insurance company without representation. And make sure you hire a lawyer as soon as possible because the Statute of Limitations on an elevator injury case is one year.
