February 22, 2019

A nurse in a Fort Worth, Texas,  hospital is suing Thyssenkrupp Elevator Corp. after the elevator she was riding plunged several floors allegedly causing her serious injuries, according to an article on the Star-Telegram website.

The lawsuit also alleges there had been other incidents involving the elevator shortly before and after the incident that injured the nurse. The lawsuit didn’t go into detail about the other malfunctions.

Also named in the lawsuit are two inspectors accused of failing to detect a dangerous condition in the elevator. Thyssenkrupp, the lawsuit says, failed to properly maintain the elevator.

The woman's injuries included herniated discs, lower back pain, a left ankle injury, bruised arms, headaches, dizziness and numbness/tingling in her head, back, arms and feet. The injuries have kept her from working, the lawsuit says.
