Earthquakes are only one part of the hazards that homes face in California. Mudslides and shifting are also problems. For people who are having a home or structure of any sort built, being able to protect the building from these issues is a priority here.
Fortunately, you can work to have these issues addressed during the planning phase of the project. Contractors can also take steps to shore up the home so that you might not have to deal with these types of horrors.
We understand that you can't really plan for everything that might happen. But, when there is an issue that should have been addressed, you might end up pursing a legal claim to try to recover the money that you spent to have the projected completed and then repaired or completely redone. This can be a considerable amount.
There are many things to consider when you are working on a construction law case. One of the primary factors is determining the amount of damages that need to be claimed. These can include the factors we just mentioned, but you can usually claim damages for the inability to use the structure if the problem is severe enough.
We realize that you might have some questions about your options. We are here to help you get answers to those. We will look at the circumstances in your case and work with you to develop a personalized plan of action. We can then get the ball rolling so that you will be on your way toward hopefully finding a resolution for the matter.
