A: This is not really a legal malpractice question, but a personal injury question. Most personal injury attorneys offer free consultations so Google personal injury lawyers or search Justia or AVVO in Philadelphia.

A: As a first step, you could contact a personal injury attorney in Pennsylvania. Many give free initial consults. The matter would need to be investigated in terms of what factors resulted in your two-hour stranding. This would include looking into the elevator itself, the maintenance program, standard operating procedures for emergency responses, and other factors.
