trapped in lift for more than 1 hour twice


I was trapped in lift on 14 jan for 1 hour plus.

again today from 7:30pm to 8:35pm, I was stuck in lift.

lift in building has no alarm, emergency light, help phone.

builders dont pick phone.

temporary in charge appointed by builder since jan just takes us for a ride, shouts at us and tells to speak to builder.

I am 75 year old with ill health. I feel traumatic. today my daughter ultimately opened lift but I slapped her.

How can builder be forced to fix lift?

how and what amount of compensation can be claimed for this entrapment and social mockery? today at 11pm, we hear building men laughing and mocking us while we got tears in eyes, headache.

You have to issue a written notice to the builder setting out the complaint and ask him for immediate repairs and endorse the copy to your local police station. You may proceed further if your complaint is not attended.

Unfortunately, such situations need only God Father like people to intervene. But, alas, we cannot do that and go to only Courts which will not give you the judgement during your life time.

 

To scare the people and atleast stop them from mocking at you, issue a legal notice through your Lawyer setting out all the faults in the building highlighting the dangerous position of the lift, seeking damages for a minimum of Rs. 10,00 lakhs (there is no set amount for this kind) for the physical strain you underwent and mental worry you are subjected to.  Problem is these builders normally are goons and very highhanded. Once you give the legal notice they may react a different manner also. You need to have your own people to defend you in case the builder and his side kicks decide to further harass you.

Yes, the best option is to give a legal notice seeking compensation. So also, it is not the case that police remain passive in such case.
