Illinois Premises Liability Lawyers
Building codes are designed to keep buildings and other structures safe. When building codes are ignored or violated, innocent people, including tenants, guests, customers and bystanders, can get hurt. When innocent people are injured because of an accident involving a building that was not in compliance with applicable building code provisions, the victim may be entitled to compensation through premises liability.
Premises liability is a theory of law that obligates property owners to maintain safe buildings and structures, and holds them liable for injuries and damages that occur on their property if they fail to keep the property in a safe condition. Because premises liability involves complex legal issues and a detailed factual examination, it is important to consult an attorney that has experience with personal injury and premises liability laws.
Some examples of common building code violations include:
- Unsafe porches or balconies
- Faulty plumbing
- Faulty wiring
- Faulty or inadequate handrails, guardrails or stairs
- Inadequate lighting
- Defective elevators or escalators
- Failure to properly maintain the building, or repair hazardous conditions
