In this case, a 41 year old maid was injured when an elevator descended at a high rate of speed and then suddenly stopped in a major midtown hotel. The impact caused a serious back injury requiring surgery. The jury rejected the defendants’ claim that our client’s injury was pre-existing and that there was nothing wrong with the elevator. On appeal, the damages portion of the verdict was reduced to $2.5 million.
