It is being reported that an escalator at Penn Station suddenly stopped last month sending passengers into the air and injuring three individuals - one man and two women - who were taken to Bellevue Hospital. According to reports, the escalator leading into the station from West 34th Street and Seventh Avenue abruptly came to a stop at approximately 1 p.m. Witnesses reported people were falling on top of one another, screaming, and in a general panic. Fortunately, many other individuals on the escalator at the time of the
accident were uninjured. No cause for the incident was reported although, undoubtedly, an investigation is under way.
There are a variety of accidents that occur on property as illustrated above. These types of claims for injury are known as
premises liability claims in the field of
personal injury law.
Premises liability claims involve those accidents and injuries that occur on another's property due to the property owner's negligence in maintaining property grounds or in taking reasonable caution to ensure the safety of customers, tenants or visitors.
