Building code

Building code violations can have a major impact on slip and fall cases, as they can contribute to unsafe conditions that result in accidents. Building codes are regulations established by state and local authorities to ensure the safety and integrity of buildings. Violations of these codes can create hazards that increase the risk of slip and fall accidents.

    What are Common Code Violations that Can Contribute to Fall Accidents?

    There are various types of building code violations that can contribute to
    slip and fall accidents, including:

    Flooring Issues

    Building codes often have specific requirements for flooring materials, surface conditions, and maintenance. Violations such as uneven or slippery surfaces, loose carpeting, or inadequate traction can increase the likelihood of slips and falls.

    Staircase and Handrail Violations

    Building codes typically dictate the dimensions, rise and run of stairs, handrail height, and other safety features.

    Inadequate Lighting

    Insufficient lighting in common areas, walkways, or staircases can make it difficult for individuals to see hazards and obstacles.

    Failure to Address Water leakage

    Building codes require prompt repairs of plumbing leaks or roof leaks to prevent the accumulation of water.

    Poorly Maintained Sidewalks and Parking lots

    Cracked pavement, potholes, or inadequate snow and ice removal can create hazardous conditions that can result in serious injuries.


    Can I File an Insurance claim After a Fall accident?

    Yes. However, you may find it challenging to deal with paperwork and aggressive claims adjusters, especially if you suffered severe injuries. These types of cases can be very complex for accident victims who are unfamiliar with local and state building code laws, personal injury law, and those who have never negotiated with an insurance company before. Because of this, it’s important to seek legal representation as soon as possible.

    A slip and fall lawyer at MVP Accident Attorneys can guide you through the entire legal process, every step of the way, from filing the paperwork and investigating the accident, to negotiating with the insurance company or filing a lawsuit, if necessary. They will also work with experts to prove liability and accurately value your claim.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
