Escalator Injury Compensation Claims Information
Escalators are essential pieces of equipment for a wide range of properties, from shopping centres to airports and subways. They allow large numbers of people to quickly move up and down various floors in a property, without having to wait for a lift. Escalators are part of our daily lives, and most of us use them on a regular basis. Most escalators are perfectly safe to use but, if they haven’t been correctly maintained, they can quickly turn dangerous. If you’ve suffered an escalator injury that wasn’t your fault, Tylers is here for you. We can help you to make escalator injury compensation claims against the party responsible for your injuries.
Here at Tylers Solicitors, our legal experts can work with you to get the compensation that you need to move on with your life. Whether you’re looking to claim against a shopping centre, your workplace or an international airport in the UK, we are here for you.
What are the Common Causes of Escalator Injuries in the UK?
In most cases, escalator injuries are caused by negligent maintenance of the escalator itself. This can include steps with missing teeth or exposed mechanisms which can easily trap a passenger. It is also possible for the steps to prove tripping or slipping hazards if they haven’t been cleaned or maintained correctly. If you’ve suffered any kind of escalator injury in the UK that wasn’t your fault or could have been avoided with effective maintenance and repairs, Tylers is here for you.
What are the Most Common Kinds of Escalator Injuries I Could Claim Compensation For?
Most escalator injuries involve slipping, tripping or falling, which can lead to broken bones, muscle damage and even head injuries. It is also possible to trap limbs in the mechanism of an escalator, which lead to serious crushing injuries. It is also possible that, due to these crushing injuries, you may suffer an amputation or serious limb injury. Whether you’ve suffered a minor injury, or something much more serious, Tylers can provide escalator injury compensation claims to suit your needs.
How Long Do I Have to Claim for Escalator Injury Compensation?
As with any kind of personal injury, accident at work or assault claim, you have up to three years after the date of the incident to begin your claim for compensation. It doesn’t matter if the case lasts longer than this three-year period, so long as it began before the closing date.

Crushing Injuries After Being Trapped in an Escalator Compensation Amounts
If the machinery of an escalator has been exposed, it is easy for any passenger to have their limbs trapped in the mechanism. This is more likely to happen to children who are closer to the machinery, due to their height, and less able to free themselves. If you, or your child, has suffered any kind of crushing injury after trapping a limb in an escalator, we are here for you.
£3,090 to £54,280
Loss of Limb After Being Trapped in an Escalator Compensation Amounts
In the most extreme circumstances, the damages caused by a crushing injury can result in the limb’s amputation. Crushing injuries in escalators can lead to amputation or cause enough damage to warrant surgical amputation. If you’ve lost a limb due to being trapped in an escalator, we are here for you. Simply get in touch with Tylers Solicitors for professional escalator injury compensation claims.
