Mr. C., 50, was delivering merchandise to a dark and deserted warehouse. He pushed the elevator button and the elevator doors opened. He stepped inside only to find that the elevator was not there. He fell head first, fifteen feet into the empty shaft, sustaining brain damage and putting him into a coma from which he never recovered.
Dansker & Aspromonte proved that the owner and maintenance company were negligent in failing to properly inspect and maintain the elevator, causing the accident. Additionally, the money would ensure perpetual care for the victim and substantial support for the family.
