Detroit Statutory Violations Attorneys

Statutes and What They Mean for You

A statute is a written law or regulation enacted by a legislative body of government such the U.S Congress, a state legislature, or even a county commission, city council, or other municipal entity. We encounter civil statutes every day in the form of building codes and rules that seek to secure the privacy of our medical records. There are also consumer protection laws that govern the manufacture and sale of common goods and services, banking and financial regulations, and health and safety laws that regulate food processing, water and air pollution, and air travel. And there are many, many more.

When do Statutory Violations Occur?

A statutory violation occurs when an individual, group, company, or governmental agency negligently or willfully breaks that law. Because the consequences may be quite severe, we look to judges and courts to determine if the alleged violations fall within scope of the law in question, the nature of the alleged violation, the circumstances surrounding the violation, and the effects and ramifications.
