Indianapolis Safety Code Violation Lawyer
The need for workplace codes and regulations is fairly well understood and agreed upon. Since the industrial revolution, the need for such statutes has become more and more obvious, with many jobs becoming increasingly hazardous if proper precautions were not taken. Although most employers diligently follow safety codes and put the safety of their workers above the bottom line, occasionally a company will fail to make accommodations for these safety codes. Regardless of whether these violations are intentional or accidental, they still constitute negligence and are not acceptable.
When safety codes are violated, the chance of injury increases significantly. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries because of such a violation, contact the Indianapolis safety code violation attorneys at Hankey Marks & Crider at (317) 634-8565, and we will evaluate your case.
Examples of Safety Code Violations
- Ignoring fire codes by barring or otherwise impeding access to exits
- Allowing hazardous piles of materials to remain in place without prompt cleanup
- Using hazardous materials in construction sites, causing potential exposure to items such as asbestos or lead
An employer has both a legal and moral responsibility to ensure a safe and hazard-free environment for his or her workers. Although some consider construction sites inherently hazardous, this duty still applies to construction employers. If an employer violates a safety code and injury results, it is unacceptable.
