Helping Injured Workers Since 1981
At The Orlow Firm, we use the phrase “elevator accident” with reluctance. The word “accident” implies that the incident was random, unpreventable and unpredictable. In fact, elevator malfunctions and subsequent injuries and wrongful death can usually be prevented by carefully following maintenance recommendations and standards. Unfortunately, while elevator maintenance companies and building owners know of risks, this knowledge is not always matched with increased diligence.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a workplace elevator accident, the New York City elevator accident attorneys at The Orlow Firm can help you. We have handled third-party claims for hundreds of injury victims in the New York City area, including numerous people injured in elevator accidents.
Our law firm has more than 30 years of experience helping workers obtain the compensation they need after an elevator accident. Schedule a free consultation today. Call (646) 647-3398 or contact us online.

We will provide you with the personal attention you deserve while we work to maximize your compensation.
Do Not Stop Once Workers’ Compensation Benefits Are Obtained
Our attorneys focus on obtaining compensation through claims against third parties for negligence. While workers’ compensation benefits themselves are usually limited to covering workers’ medical expenses and a portion of lost wages, they do not limit workers’ legal right to pursue compensation from other sources.
Often, other parties like elevator manufacturers, maintenance companies and site contractors are responsible for elevator breakdowns. When third parties cause construction accidents, workers can file lawsuits against them in addition to filing for workers’ compensation. These third-party claims can result in more money damages than workers’ compensation.
