Residential Elevators Recall Investigation

The Lyon Firm is investigating the Residential Elevators recall and elevator injury claims on behalf of plaintiffs nationwide. Call now to seek compensation.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) recently issued a recall for Residential Elevators sold from 1986 through July 2022. The CPSC says young children can become trapped in the space between the exterior landing (hoistway) door and the interior elevator car door, potentially leading to serious injuries or death.

Around 31,000 units have been recalled, including the Easy Rider, Horizon Lift, Luxury Lift, Luxury Lift Hydraulic, Luxury Lift Traction and RE models.

Residential Elevators, out of Tallahassee, Florida cautioned consumers to keep children away from the recalled elevator models until space guards are installed.

The firm has been informed of at least one incident involving one of its residential elevators, installed by an independent installer, that allegedly resulted in a serious spinal injury to a child.

This recall involves the Easy Rider, Horizon Lift, Luxury Lift, Luxury Lift Hydraulic, Luxury Lift Traction, and RE. The Residential Elevators brand name is printed on the light in the operating panel inside the elevator cab.

This is not the first recall for the company, as 19,500 of the Savaria and Garaventa branded elevators were also recalled in January 2022.
