What Are Building Codes?
Building codes are safety laws and regulations enacted by the state and local governments intended to keep buildings safe for construction, use, and occupation. New York City has a number of regulations governing the construction, repair, and maintenance of both residential and commercial properties. There are rules pertaining to the design of buildings, construction of staircases, escalators, and elevators, reinforcements, proper building materials, electrical systems, plumbing, fuel and gas piping, and countless other elements of construction and maintenance.
Building codes keep structures safe for construction workers while the building is being constructed, and they keep the building safe for people who reside in, work in, or visit the building after construction. When a property owner or operator violates a building code, they are creating a safety hazard that puts the health and lives of everyone who enters the property at risk. An experienced building code violation attorney can evaluate an accident to determine whether a building code violation contributed to the injury.
Common Accidents Resulting from Building Code Violations
Building codes protect the safety of building occupants. Violating those codes can result in injury or death to people working or living in the building, as well as anyone who happens to be visiting the building for a private or commercial purpose.
