Know where to turn for construction defect claims

On Behalf of | Jun 23, 2017 | Construction Law

There is never any reason for a person to be injured because of a construction defect. Contractors are expected to uphold high standards when they are building structures. When the contractor fails to meet at least the applicable codes, people who use the structure and even people who are just near the structure can suffer harm.

We know that when you are injured by a construction defect, you might not know what to do from here. Your top priority has to be getting medical care if your injuries are serious. Of course, this means that you will likely incur health care bills. There isn’t any reason why you should be stuck having to deal with the financial aspects of the injuries. You also shouldn’t be the person who has to cover the costs of correcting the defect.

As an injured party, you have the option of seeking compensation based on the construction defect. The party you hold liable depends on the circumstances of the situation. If workmanship was the problem, you would likely turn to the contractor. If defective materials were the cause, you might hold the manufacturer liable, but the contractor might also be liable if he or she knew of the material defects.

We understand that you might need to get some answers before you move forward. You should make sure that you are aware of the points that you need to make in your case and the options that you have at each step of the way. The more information you have, the better informed decisions you can make about the direction of you claim.
