Property Owner Negligence And Building Code Violations
Owning commercial property is a significant responsibility in Illinois. Property owners are required to keep their buildings up to code. Failure to do so can result in liability for injuries sustained on the premises.
If you have been injured on someone else’s property, you may have the right to receive compensation for your injuries from the property owner. Contact Mark L. Karno & Associates, LLC for a free case evaluation with an experienced premises liability lawyer.
Building Code Violations That Result In Injury
Illinois has enacted building codes for the safety of people in both residential and commercial buildings. Noncompliance with building codes can result in dangerous conditions such as:
- Inadequate lighting that can cause injuries
- Unsafe porches or balconies
- Bad wiring
- Faulting plumbing
- Defective or damaged stairways
- Faulty elevators or escalators
- Broken or defective handrails
These hazards can cause severe injuries that require medical care and long-term treatment. Many families cannot shoulder those financial burdens on their own. Our attorneys can help you recover the compensation you need to move forward with life after suffering an injury due to a building code violation.
