People expect and are entitled to receive quality construction that is free of defects. Legal claims arise when work is performed with defects in materials or workmanship.
At Moretz & Skufca, PLLC, our construction litigators represent clients in many types of construction defect-related claims.
A growing area of coverage litigation has arisen from the construction industry, with significant matters often surfacing through homeowner insurance and general liability insurance claims. These claims arise from a variety of situations:
- Design problems related to the work of architects and engineers
- Foundational and structural problems
- Electrical and plumbing issues
- Water intrusion
- Defective materials, including drywall
- Balconies and decks
- Health hazards
Defect cases require careful investigation, consultation with independent experts and diligent preparation. In each case we seek to obtain payments from the insurance carrier for both the opposing party and our client to fully pay for any claims which are covered by insurance policies for the parties in the dispute. We work tirelessly to pursue the strongest strategy for every construction defect case we undertake.
