Are You an Elevator Accident Victim? Don’t Settle for Less.

Elevator Accidents

Elevator accidents may be rare, but when they occur, the results can be catastrophic. If you’ve sustained a serious injury from an elevator accident or have a loved one who has been tragically injured or killed, we will hold the responsible parties accountable and get you the settlement you deserve.

These are complex cases that should not be handled by your average lawyer. Our attorneys have gone head to head with some of the largest elevator manufacturers in the country and have walked away with incredible settlements for our clients. We can help you, too.

You’re In Good Hands

Our Approach

When we take you on as a client, we invest significant time and resources in putting together your case—because we’re invested in the outcome, just like you.

Before we ever file a case, we line up the evidence and strategize on a detailed and case-specific litigation plan. Once a lawsuit is filed, our team shapes the narrative of the case from the outset by leading the charge in discovery and taking the depositions of key witnesses, such as building and elevator maintenance workers, first responders, eyewitnesses, and treating doctors.

We hire the top experts from the elevator industry, and we create accident reconstruction videos, to better explain the case and the injuries to the carrier and/or the jury.

From there, we spare no expense in assembling an airtight case. By combining our personal understanding of your specific situation with insight from an elevator accident expert witness, we start to put together a surefire argument against those responsible for your accident.

Insurance companies know that certain law firms get more and more desperate for settlement, the closer they get to trial. Unprepared to take the case the full distance, these firms lose leverage as trial approaches. As a result, their clients do not get full and fair justice for their injuries.

The opposite is true when SHK is on the case. As a trial firm, we hold all the cards as trial draws near. We have done the work. Our experts are retained and ready to testify. We are trial-ready. There is no need – and no pressure – to accept a lowball offer. This gives us the upper hand and leverage to obtain the maximum value prior to trial. If we do settle before trial, we settle for full and fair justice–not discount justice.

The numbers don’t lie: our outstanding jury verdicts have paved a pathway for excellent settlements. And since we are willing to finance a case all the way through trial, you will not have to accept an unfair payout for your injuries.
