Safety Code Violations

Have You Been Injured Due to a Safety Code Violation?

Construction is heavily regulated, and for good reason. It’s dangerous. When safety is ignored at construction sites, both construction workers and passersby can be seriously injured or killed. Safety is the primary reason behind New York City’s strict building code, and violations of the code cause or contribute to many serious injuries and deaths at construction sites.

If you have been injured in a construction site accident and suspect that a safety code violation was a factor, the New York construction accident attorneys at The Orlow Firm can help. We have more than 30 years of experience investigating and holding building owners, contractors and others responsible for construction accidents.

Our father-and-sons legal team represents workers injured in construction accidents throughout New York City, including Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx. Contact us online or call (646) 647-3398 for a free consultation.

Code Violations Have Consequences

Building owners and contractors must usually obtain permits and submit to inspections by the city for construction work. When the New York City Buildings Department finds hazardous or unsafe conditions, it issues a stop work order. Thousands of these orders are issued each year, but construction workers and others continue to suffer serious and sometimes fatal injuries as a result of safety code violations.

Our law firm can help with injuries that result from:

  • Health and sanitation violations
  • Faulty plumbing
  • Faulty electrical wiring
  • Failing to obtain a permit
  • Slippery conditions
  • Unsafe entries
  • Inadequately secured ladders and scaffolds
  • Exposed holes with no warning signs
  • Inadequate safety equipment

If you have been injured on a work site, our law firm can help you. We can refer you to a skilled workers’ compensation lawyer, and we will thoroughly investigate your accident for a third-party liability claim stemming from a code violation or another careless or negligent act.
