Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today.
Hello JD and thank you.
You can sue but you are likely going to have to do it in small claims court. Even assuming that the situation involves an escalator with problems in the past, the damages aren't large enough for a lawyer to take the case.
Luckily, your daughter wasn't injured but a lack of injury makes a lawsuit difficult.
ok...thanks....I had looked into the lack of security on the premises and the negligence since no one has even contacted us. Thanks. My concern is that this could be a danger for someone else.
I think there is little doubt you would win but the amount you would win wouldn't be a whole lot and might not be worth the effort.
Ok, appreciate it JD...enjoy your day.
To you as well, and you're very welcome.
Best wishes to you. Please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating (of course I'd suggest Excellent) so I get credit for my work.
