Construction litigation is the branch of law that deals with defects in the construction of commercial and private homes. Construction defects can cause financial loss due to repairs or personal injuries to homeowners, and an attorney experienced in construction litigation can help them get compensation for this loss.
Soil settling and improper drainage
Defective construction materials
Leaky roofs due to improper installation
Unsafe structures like decks or balconies
Faulty electrical or plumbing systems
Building code violations
These kinds of construction defects can cause financial loss to the owner of the property through repair costs or medical expenses due to an accident incurred on the property.
In construction litigation, your attorney will go after the parties that are financially responsible for these kinds of construction defects. This can be the construction company that performed the construction on your property or the homeowners insurance company that refuses to compensate you for damages or medical expenses.
