A fitness trainer left partially paralyzed in an NYC elevator accident is suing the same elevator-repair company linked to a separate elevator accident that crushed and killed a woman between floors.
Corey Hill, 34, of Manhattan, filed suit against Transel Elevator in connection with the Nov. 12 accident that allegedly crippled him, the New York Post reports.
Hill's NYC elevator accident lawsuit claims he stepped into an elevator on the 26th floor of his apartment building and pressed the button for the lobby. The elevator unexpectedly started to freefall, then jerked to a stop several floors down, the Post reports.
Hill thought he was just shaken, but the next day, he had problems moving his legs, Hill told the Post. The problems escalated, and Hill soon lost all sensation in his legs and couldn't move them, he said.
