Code Violations

Owners and landlords who violate building codes can be liable for injuries to tenants or visitors. Additionally, where an owner or landlord failed to comply with laws requiring proper security in their building such as window or door locks, or where a business owner failed to provide security guards at a dangerous location, they may be responsible for harm suffered. Owners and landlords who fail to provide code compliant staircases and fire escape exits can be liable for injuries that occur. Code violations that exist on construction sites and in the workplace can result in injury and result in legal responsibility.
