Have you recently been involved in an accident? If the accident was caused by a construction defect, you may be entitled to compensation. An injury caused by another person or entity means they are fully responsible for the injuries and damages you have sustained. At Nehora Law Firm, our personal injury lawyers have represented clients throughout Orange County – helping afflicted persons recover the maximum possible compensation value. Below, we explain more about how our legal team can assist you.
When we talk about construction defect litigation, we talk about those defects in the property that - due to neglect, recklessness or intent – have caused personal injury to you. These defects can take many forms. For example, cracked concrete can compromise the structural integrity of the property. Debris may also be a problem. Property owners have a responsibility to ensure their site complies with local, state and federal health, safety and construction legislation.
Failure to abide by these statutes constitutes a breach for which they must be held fully accountable for. Below, we list many of the most common causes of construction defect personal injury.
Causes of Construction Defect Injury
- Unwanted water intrusion
- Defective building materials
- Soil movement
- Questions of structural integrity
- Cracked concrete, drywall and stucco
- Deficient windows, doors and waterproofing
- Electrical and heating deficiencies
This causative list is by no means exhaustive. Given the complexity of a construction site, there are many and numerous other causes we could consider. For example, the electricity system can pose a very serious, if not life-threatening risk to persons. Shoddy workmanship, too, undermines the structural value of the premises. Heating failures, poorly managed drainage and dry rot are yet other causes. At Nehora Law Firm, our team of construction defect attorneys have helped clients recover compensation.

The precise compensation value depends, of course, on the nature and extent of one’s injuries. Injuries may be mild or they may be severe. In some cases, injuries may even prove fatal. Compensation values depend on both economic and noneconomic sources of loss. Our construction defect lawyers, then, evaluate the following sources of loss: medical damages; loss of wages; loss of quality of life; short-term and long-term emotional distress, amongst other factors. We evaluate each factor in a fair and equitable manner.
