Building Code Violations
The California Building Standards Code affects all parts of residential and commercial structures, and it is there for a reason: to protect people from harm. When building owners fail to comply with building codes and innocent people are hurt, the law may hold building owners or possessors responsible.
At Butler Viadro, LLP, this is our goal. Our experienced legal team takes action against building owners who commit a California construction code violation. We handle injury cases that occur in many different situations:
- Faulty railing or unsafe stairs
- Unsafe decks
- Cracked or uneven sidewalks
- Poor lighting
- Missing railings or banisters
- Improper wiring
- Broken elevators

When they violate California state and local building codes and when someone is hurt because of it, they should be held accountable for the harm.
