Tackling The Difficulties Of Construction Law Disputes

Construction Defect Claims
Construction defects and design flaws can result in water intrusion. This, in turn, leads to mold and structural damage. Improper tucking, leaking dormers or improper grading 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 business owner’s or homeowner’s insurer seeks reimbursement from a construction company’s insurer or from 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.
