Escalator Elevator Consulting Group


          Condition Assessment - Post Accident Inspection



Expert Witness services - 


Whether from the Plaintiff's or Defendant's point of view, litigation focusing on injuries sustained by people using elevator and escalator equipment frequently requires the services of an elevator / escalator expert to survey the accident equipment, perform operating and condition assessments, inspect for Code compliance, determine the failure modes that contributed to the loss, and testify in court. EECG performs these tasks with a clear understanding of the background legal issues involved such as dangerous condition, common carrier liability, negligence, and design immunity. We have worked closely with attorneys over many years to prepare cases going to court and appear as an expert witness, offering accurate, well researched and thorough reports and opinions.
