In a tough economy, it is not uncommon for homebuilders and developers to cut corners in construction projects. Unfortunately for home and property owners, these negligent measures often result in building damage, dangerous living conditions, insurance liabilities, and costly repairs.
At the law firm of Martin & Wallentine, LLC, our Johnson County construction defect attorney protects home, business, and other property owners who have discovered construction defects by supporting them in civil litigation cases. We will review your case and determine who would be the appropriate party against whom to pursue legal action.
We can help you seek compensation for whatever damages arise due to their negligence, including problems related to:
- Window leaks
- Mold and fungus
- Faulty wiring
- Generally low-quality construction
- Problems with heating or air conditioning
- Use of inferior and problematic materials
- Cracks in the foundation, walls, or floors
- Defective design
- Architectural engineering flaws
- Subsurface or geotechnical problems
- Homebuilder negligence
Assessing the Property Damage & Pursuing Compensation
From a legal standpoint, it is important to take action as soon as a construction defect has been identified. There are time limits on how long you have to file a claim and relevant evidence for your case could be time-sensitive. The defense may try to argue that any damage illustrated is a result of factors other than the negligence of the architects, builders, or developers involved, but rather due to your own wrongdoing. If you try to take them on alone, you will have to prove that they are at fault alone. It is better to enter the courtroom well-prepared and with a professional in your corner who understand the ins and outs of litigation.
