When a victim claims to suffer an injury, lawyers often attempt to cite a building code violation as the duty breached. We found there were over 52M results when we Googled the term premises liability and the building code. Did you know that building codes were established to set minimum safety standards? This course will teach attendees:

  • The basics of interpreting building code
  • Some key events that have led to new safety standards
  • How and why they were established
  • Lastly, the session will discuss two big claimed caused of premises liability claims: stairs and poor lighting

Attendees will learn how the building code applies to:

  • Negligence per se claims
  • Constructive notice claims
  • Reasonable standards
  • Failure to maintain claims
  • Grandfathering
