Examples of Construction Defects

Our construction defect attorneys handle a multitude of construction defect claims, on both sides of the issue. Whether you need to bring a claim or are being sued for a defect, we can protect your rights and your best interests. The type and variety of construction defect claims can be as varied as the entities, materials and contracts involved in a construction project.

  • Electrical defects
  • Gaseous chemical emissions
