Construction Defects Litigation
During or after the construction of a building or other structure, disputes frequently arise between developers, builders, property owners, general contractors, subcontractors and their respective insurers over the defective construction of the property or its subparts. Examples of such defects include or relate to defective materials, specification and design error, mold, change orders, negligent inspection and leaks caused by improperly installed roofs, fenestrations and flashings. Construction defect law is geared toward determining the parties’ respective responsibilities, if any, for damages resulting from these defects.
