Code Violations
Denver Code Violation Attorneys

Property owners in Denver have a legal obligation to provide a safe environment for people who are invited onto their property. This applies to customers or clients as well as employees at businesses, tenants and their guests at rental property, and people passing by on public areas of private property such as parking lots and sidewalks as well as a number of others. In all cases, property owners are responsible for ensuring that their property meets safety codes that may apply such as building code, fire code, and electrical code. If you have been injured and you feel that a property owner’s failure to meet safety codes may have caused your injury, you need to contact a Denver premises liability attorney to discuss your options.

There are a number of issues that can arise during the construction process that can cause a building to be unsafe, including

  • Subsurface Geotechnical Issues. It is important to understand the geology of the location before beginning construction so that design can reflect the particular geotechnical makeup of the site.
  • Poor Design. It may not be possible to compensate later for flaws in the structural design of the building.
  • Poor Quality Construction Materials. A building constructed of low-quality materials may be an unsafe building.
  • Defective Workmanship. A building constructed of good materials from a great design by careless workers may cause problems later.

After construction of a building is finished, the owner of the building is responsible for maintaining conformity to safety codes. At the time of purchasing any building, there is normally an inspection. During the inspection, the new owner should learn what issues there may be, so that they can be addressed. After that, he or she needs to make a reasonable effort to keep the building up to all codes.

While the vast majority of all property is maintained effectively and to safe standards, it is an unfortunate fact of life that in some cases, buildings are allowed to become unsafe, and sometimes this results in injuries to people who had no way to know that they were at risk. If you have been injured because a property owner failed to meet safety codes, speak with a Denver premises liability lawyer to discuss whether you have the right to compensation.
