Customer Question
I fell backward going up...
I fell backward going up an escalator at Amtrak Chicago Union Station. I was positioning my luggage on step when it toppled over on me; my entire right side was injured. I hit my head, knee ,neck, shoulder, hip & back were injured. I am 64 & disabled. There were no signs that pointed to an elevator, else I would have taken it along with 16 other people in my group who are also 64 with some sort of disability.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
