A construction defect typically consists of a flaw in structural design or a factor that may lead to a weakened structure. The more severe the defect, the higher the chance that a collapse may occur. These defects may invariably lead to injury or death.
If you are a contractor or construction company who has had such a claim filed against you, we can and will help defend you or your company’s operations. The laws stipulating how much liability a company will hold varies by state. We understand that these laws must be upheld and respected in order to maintain safety in construction areas. We will thoroughly research such laws to determine if your company truly is liable for an accident that has occurred.
