Unsafe Elevator

A Metra railroad employee was injured when he was using the freight elevator at the Metra Building located at 547 W. Jackson in Chicago. As the Metra employee was making deliveries, the elevator stopped short, jolting the client’s back and causing a herniated disc. The client ultimately required a laminectomy surgery to his lumbar spine and was placed on restrictions from returning to his normal work as a railroad employee. Trapp & Geller were able to uncover a longstanding history of entrapments and unsafe elevator operations by Schindler Elevator Company and Metra Railroad in the manner in which they maintained and repaired the elevator.
