How To Address Construction Defects

Property owners have the right to expect construction work to be defect-free and completed according to specifications. Contractors, subcontractors, architects and other parties involved in a construction project have the right to address or remedy allegedly faulty work.

Dealing With Multiple Parties In Construction Defect Lawsuits

Construction defect cases can become complex quickly because of the number of parties involved in a construction project. A homeowner or commercial property owner typically initiates the action. Often, the contractor is the target of the lawsuit. Many other parties may be involved, however, including the architect who designed the project if accused of defective design or the materials supplier if accused of supplying defective materials.

We know how to sort through the layers of complexity in these cases to protect your interests and pursue a positive outcome through negotiation or trial.
