The longest drop was from the first floor to the basement floor and it took 2 or 3 men to open the door. When I got back to the room, I had a knot on my knee and it started hurting. The hotel filled out a report, and when I got home, eventually it was discovered that my knee replacenebt was extremely injured. I was in surgery 9 and one half hours.. I still have problems after almost 3 years. I cannot find a lawyer that will help me. The South Carolina Bar Association gave me a name, and he thought it was a good case but did not have time. I run out of time on September 25. One firm said I had a good case and kept my materials for almost a half year and sent all my materials back. Insurance
says nothing was wrong with elevator and I have received nothing! HELP!!! Running out of time!
You can find another lawyer. For more information, you can read about elevator accidents on my site under the premises liability section. Good luck.
