Safety Code Violations

Safety Code Violation: Medical Care And Compensation For Accident Victims

A landlord doesn’t repair a broken handrail. A maintenance worker fails to timely replace a lock on a window or door and a resident is attacked or injured by a trespasser. An apartment building owner fails to keep smoke detectors in working order. The manager of a bar or club allows too many people into the establishment, exceeding its occupancy limit, or fails to hire competent security personnel also known as “bouncers.” Each of these acts could have injurious or fatal consequences.

At Fine, Farkash & Parlapiano, P.A., we are strong advocates for victims of negligence. When a safety violation causes harm, we are prepared to act. Our law firm works diligently to obtain compensation in cases involving safety and building code violations, and we will aggressively represent you.

Negligent Building Maintenance Lawyers Serving North Florida

Fine, Farkash & Parlapiano, P.A., has the investigative resources and the trial experience needed to prevail in premises liability cases. When we represent you, we will work hard to document the negligence of the property owner, building management company or other party responsible for the accident.

Some provisions of Florida law concerning safety and building code violations affect how our personal injury law firm approaches a landlord liability case:

  • Evidence of remedial measures taken by a landlord to correct a violation after an accident is not admissible in court in a premises liability lawsuit.
  • On the other hand, evidence attesting to a violation of a building code is admissible.

The latter point is important. When circumstances allow it, our law firm will point out safety violations to municipal building inspectors and fire inspectors. When they cite a landlord for a violation, that evidence can be used in court.

If you or a family member has been harmed by a property owner’s failure to comply with a safety or building code provision, we can help. Fine, Farkash & Parlapiano, P.A., will work tirelessly to build a strong and successful premises liability case for you.
