Construction defects are defects that reduce the value of your home. Given the diverse nature of what constitutes a “defect”, there are innumerable causes of these cases. At Nehora Law Firm, our experienced team of construction defect litigation lawyers can help you recover lost damages and compensation. The defect itself may also be the cause of personal injury, in which case you may be entitled to compensation there, too. If you’re unsure whether you have a case, contact a member of our legal team today. We will provide you with a free assessment of whether you have a case.
As we discussed, there are innumerable causes of what constitutes a defect. Many defects are obvious, whereas others are more insidious and less well-established. It can, in some cases, prove challenging to determine whether the defect was caused through the negligence of another person. Construction experts may need to be consulted and, through their evaluation, they can provide the evidence to buttress and support your case. Below, we list only some of the common causes of construction defect litigation cases.
Unwanted water intrusion
issues, such as
Cracked concrete, drywall and stucco
Defective building materials
Deficient windows, doors and waterproofing
Of course, there may be multiple causes – each of which influences and amplifies the effect of the other. These causes include shoddy workmanship, improper use of building materials, poorly executed civil and structural engineering, poor choice of site, among other factors. Our construction defect litigation attorneys have helped clients throughout Orange County recover compensation by defects impacted by water damage, mold, electrical failure, systemic heating failure, cracks and structural weaknesses, badly managed drainage and dry rot.
The impact of construction defects can be both serious and hazardous. These defects are serious in that they reduce the value of your home. They are hazardous because, in many cases, the defect results in personal injury. In legal terms, there are several categories of construction defect. Our construction defect litigation lawyers have dealt with both “patent” and “latent” cases. Patent cases are those defects that are clear and present. Other defects do not occur until many months and years have passes. These are referred to as “latent” cases.
Many clients ask what damages they might be entitled to. Of course, the precise value needs to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Nonetheless, we can summarize many of the leading sources of damages. These include the loss in value of your home, personal injury damages, loss of the use of your property during repairs, legal fees, and any temporary accommodation you need to use while repairs are ongoing. The nature of the case, the impact it has had on you personally, are also considered. Together, our construction defect litigation lawyers evaluate the maximum possible compensation.
