Faulty Construction, Design Defects

Construction defects and design flaws can result in water intrusion that leads to mold and structural damage. Improper tucking, leaking dormers, or how a property was graded can create liability for construction companies, builders and subcontractors. Physical repairs are often expensive and may or may not be covered under an insurance policy.

In some cases, subrogation may be necessary if a homeowner's insurer seeks reimbursement from a construction company's insurer or the maker of the defective materials. As your attorney, Stephen Kaplan will work with experts to determine how mold or property damage occurred and can establish and assert your interests if any insurance litigation arises in connection with your case.

Real estate contracts can be complicated. In most cases, real estate contracts require mediation or arbitration. However, if you are a homeowner or a real estate developer, arbitration could leave you worse off than if you elected litigation to resolve a dispute. As your attorney, Stephen Kaplan will evaluate your case and discuss the options available to you.
