Trapped in an escalator motor pit

In this case, we represented a 46 year old railroad employee who was trapped in an escalator motor pit. Our office was able to show that the door to the pit was improper. The door should have been easy to open and close. The door in question got stuck and it was jammed shut. The railroad had already replaced some of the doors but not where the client was working. The client was injured in his attempt to free himself from the dark and hot pit. He claimed back injuries with some surgical procedures. We were successful in obtaining a resolution for the client, even though he went back to work full time.
