Worker Injured in Elevator Accident in West Palm Beach, Florida

West Palm Beach, Florida — A worker was injured in an elevator accident in a parking garage located in downtown West Palm Beach.

The technician was underneath the elevator conducting maintenance when hydraulic fluid leaked, causing the elevator to descend and trapping the technician underneath.

Emergency crews freed the trapped worker and transported him to the hospital.

The man sustained a head injury.

Workers deserve to work in a safe environment

Yes, some jobs are more dangerous than others. This doesn’t give a company a free pass whenever a person suffers serious injuries at their workplace to not be held responsible.

Companies need to make sure they have a safety plan in place to protect their workers. This includes safety equipment, safety training, additional workers for protection, and ensuring equipment is functional and working correctly, not creating a hazard.

A thorough investigation will determine if the company did its best to protect its workers and prevent accidents or if it shared fault with the worker getting seriously injured.

May all the facts come to light.
