Chicago Building Code Violations
Building codes are designed to prevent construction defects, and to keep people and structures safe. Although construction accidents can occur even if there were no building code violations, if building code provisions are ignored or violated, it often points to an inherent construction defect.
Construction accidents caused by a construction defect or building code violation can result in premises liability for the property owner since property owners and managers are obligated to maintain safe buildings and structures. Because construction accidents caused by defects and building code violations involve complex issues regarding liability of the general contractor, subcontractors, and property owner, it is important to consult with an attorney who can assess the various sources of liability.
At Dworkin and Maciariello, our Chicago construction accident lawyers focus on helping accident and injury victims protect and assert their legal rights to financial recovery. As such, we are well-versed in a wide variety of causes of action, including personal injury, worker’s compensation, premises liability, and product liability. After undergoing a detailed factual investigation into the construction accident, we will conduct a comprehensive legal analysis to determine all appropriate sources of liability.
