Dangerous Building Code Violations

When a property owner has a building constructed on their land, they need to ensure that the building’s specifications meet the safety codes established by law. These building codes are designed to keep anyone living, working, or visiting the building safe from unnecessary harm. In some cases, these building codes can be very specific and direct regarding what is required of a property owner. If a property owner fails to follow these codes and someone is injured as a result of a preventable error, that individual may be eligible to file for financial compensation from the property owner.

If you or someone you love was injured in a building that didn’t meet the legal codes, there may be legal options available to pursue compensation from the responsible property owner. For a free consultation regarding your full range of options after an injury, contact a Denver premises liability lawyer from Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., today by calling (303) 423-1770.

Common Building Code Violations

Building code violations create avoidable premises hazards that may jeopardize the health and safety of anyone using the building. In particular, these violations may include, but certainly are not limited to, the following dangers:

  • Lack of fire prevention equipment or fire alarms
  • Lack of properly marked emergency exits
  • Use of highly flammable building materials
  • Stairs that run too high or deep to be used safely without tripping
  • Stairs that vary in height or depth too much to be used safely without tripping
  • A lack of handrails on stairwells
  • Unsafely wired electrical systems

If a person is injured because of a building code violation, the property owner may be sued for financial compensation that can cover medical bills, out-of-pocket costs, and even wages lost during an injured individual’s recovery.
