Legal Options for Families of Children Involved in Vacation Home Elevator Accidents
No family should have to lose a child or see their child sustain major injuries as a result of an accident involving an unsafe elevator at a vacation rental property. However, if this does occur, a family should at least know that they may be able to hold accountable home elevator manufacturers and installers by filing a claim or lawsuit.
It’s best for families who plan on taking legal action to coordinate with attorneys when doing so. First, it can be unclear in these circumstances who the liable parties may be.
For example, the CSPC has specifically noted that accidents involving residential elevators may be associated with the following companies:
Those companies may be liable for compensating the families of children involved in accidents with their elevators. However, depending on the specific nature of the circumstances, it may be more appropriate to assign liability to the vacation rental platform or the property owner who allowed a customer to unknowingly be put in harm’s way.
