Building codes exist to protect people like you and me from suffering injury while on public property, places of business, and our homes. However, too often, neglect or wrongdoing foster unsafe or dangerous building conditions. Building accidents often involve defective elevators and escalators, ceiling collapse, exposure to toxins (such as lead and asbestos), fire, explosion, sidewalk and stairway dangers, inadequate security, slippery floors, cracks that have not been repaired, animal attacks, and much more.

If you live, work, or visit a building that is unsafe, and you suffer injury in a building accident, Marchelos Law can help you get the compensation for your losses from those who had a duty to prevent this accident from occurring in the first place.

Building accidents generally fall under the area of law known as premise liability. Under these laws, building managers, owners, and other responsible parties have a duty to keep a building free and clear of conditions that pose risks to visitors, inhabitants, and others. If these responsible parties fail in this duty, they can be held liable for any injuries or deaths that occur on their property.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious harm in a building accident, you may be able to obtain compensation for your injuries, losses, and suffering. Please contact Steve Marchelos and let him put his years of legal experience, and passion for fighting for the rights of the injured, to work for you.
