In April 2018, our client was employed as a medical supply technician at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center. During one of his shifts, our client required use of the hospital’s elevator system to transport medical equipment throughout the facility. When he boarded an elevator, the lights suddenly flickered out and the elevator car violently crashed to the basement floor. Our client was able to exit the elevator with the help of a nearby maintenance worker, but he had sustained serious physical injury to his back and neck, in addition to psychological trauma and mental anguish caused by the disturbing event.
Not only has our client needed extensive medical care for these injuries, but he also has lost wages from missing work and suffered other economic damages as a direct result of the event. On behalf of our client, Charles E. Boyk Law Offices is suing Otis Elevator Company, which had a duty to maintain the safety and reliability of the elevators at the hospital. We are seeking full compensation for the medical care and associated costs, suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress brought about by this breach of duty by Otis.
