20 people injured due to escalator malfunction

Posted on May 23rd, 2013 No Comments

Twenty people were reportedly injured after an escalator suddenly changed directions in San Antonio the afternoon of May 15.

According to reports, at least 20 people tumbled down over each other after the escalator they were riding in the Henry B. Gonzalez Center suddenly stopped and changed direction. Fourteen of the victims were hospitalized due to injuries ranging from moderate to severe.

Convention Center spokeswoman Andrea DeLaune said some visitors attending a GameStop expo were injured last August after an escalator malfunction occurred. A maintenance worker in the convention center who does not want to be identified said it was the same escalator that recently malfunctioned.

Sustaining injuries from defective escalators may leave you with expensive medical bills and other undue losses. Fortunately, the lawyers from the Chris Mayo Law Firm may be able to help you seek the compensation you need after a manufacturer or property owner negligently allows an escalator accident to occur.

A worker in an oilfield in Karnes County recently was killed after a pipe fell on his head the morning of May 6.

According to reports coming from the Karnes County Sheriff’s Office, the accident happened in a construction site near County Road 249 and F.M. 81, about 8 miles north of Karnes City, when 25-year-old James Burnett had a pipe fall on his head at around 10 a.m. Despite CPR being performed on Burnett, he was reported dead on the construction site.

The construction site is owned by BHP Billiton Petroleum, who said the operations at the site have been stopped and investigations are being conducted.

Our lawyers at the Chris Mayo Law Firm express their sincere condolences to the family, friends, and loved ones of the oilfield worker that recently died in this tragic accident.
