Hiring a Building Code Violation Lawyer: Know Your Rights
Building code violations can result in serious injuries or death. If you have informed a property owner like your landlord of a building code violation and your landlord ignores it, your lawyer may be able to prove negligence in your premise liability case. This will establish strict liability in your case. This, in turn, will put the “burden of proof” on the defendant: instead of your attorney having to prove that they are guilty, the landowner will need to prove him or herself innocent in court. When this happens, your case is essentially a slam-dunk.
Premises Liability Law
Under Massachusetts law, the owner of a premises has liability for what happens to anyone who is there. That can include anyone from landlords to tenants and business owners. That makes them financially liable for injuries that someone suffers on their property due to issues like:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Toxic fumes
- Environmental contaminants like asbestos
- Water contamination
- Dog bites
When determining fault in a premises liability case, there are three main types of people who exist on a property:
- Invitee: Someone who has been granted access to a property by its owner. This can include house guests or visiting family members. The vast majority of people on a piece of property are invitees.
- Licensees: someone who is on the property legally, but not as an invitee. Usually, Massachusetts law lumps invitees and licensees into one category called “legal entrants.”
- Trespassers: these are people who are on the property illegally. They are generally not covered by premises liability laws, and can only sue a property owner who willfully harmed them.
If you are a legal entrant and suffer from an injury on a property, the property owner will be liable for your injuries.
