Common Fire Code Violations in New York Leading to Personal Injury

Blocked Exits

Blocked exits are a significant hazard during a fire emergency. Whether due to clutter, debris, or improperly placed furniture, blocked exits can prevent occupants from escaping safely and quickly, increasing the risk of injury or death.

Inadequate Fire Alarms and Sprinkler Systems

Failure to install or maintain functioning fire alarms and sprinkler systems is a serious violation. These systems are essential for alerting occupants to a fire and suppressing flames, which reduces the likelihood of injuries and fatalities.

Lack of Emergency Lighting

Inadequate emergency lighting can impede evacuation efforts during a fire emergency, especially in poorly lit areas or during power outages. Properly illuminated exit routes are essential for guiding occupants to safety.

Electrical Code Violations

Electrical code violations, such as overloaded circuits, faulty wiring, or exposed electrical components, pose a significant fire risk. These violations can lead to electrical fires, causing injuries and property damage.

Neglected Fire Safety Training

Failure to provide adequate fire safety training to occupants or employees is a violation that can result in confusion and panic during a fire emergency. Proper training ensures that individuals know how to respond quickly and effectively to mitigate risks and injuries.

Missing or Inadequate Fire Extinguishers

Fire extinguishers are vital for containing small fires and preventing them from spreading. However, if they are missing, expired, or improperly maintained, they cannot effectively mitigate fire hazards. This can place occupants at a serious risk of injury.

Improper Storage of Flammable Materials

Improper storage of flammable materials, such as chemicals, gasoline, or propane tanks, can increase the likelihood of fire incidents. Storing these materials near heat sources or in confined spaces can lead to explosions and severe injuries.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to a fire code violation, Attorney Michael S. Lamonsoff and his team of fire code violation lawyers in New York City will aggressively represent your rights.

Impact of Fire Code Violations in New York City

When fire safety regulations are disregarded, occupants, visitors, and emergency responders face heightened risks during emergencies. Inadequate fire exits, blocked escape routes, or malfunctioning fire suppression systems can leave individuals trapped inside buildings, exacerbating injury risks and hindering timely evacuation efforts. 

Those affected by fire code violations may endure physical and emotional trauma, including:

  • Burns
  • Smoke Inhalation
  • Traumatic Injuries
  • Crush Injuries
  • Emotional Trauma
  • Smoke and Chemical Exposure
  • Falls and Impact Injuries

The financial toll can be substantial, with victims facing mounting medical expenses, loss of income, and long-term rehabilitation needs. The pain can be immeasurable for families who lose loved ones in fires caused by negligence.
