Help When A Construction Defect Has Affected Your Progress
New construction or rehabilitation projects — whether residential or commercial — do not always end up meeting acceptable standards. Construction defects that were either overlooked or covered up can come to light at a later time, resulting in significant financial hardship for the owning association or property management company. The legal system affords a path to allocating responsibility and recouping those costs.
For contractors, construction defect claims can pose a risk of significant liability, particularly for those without insurance coverage (or adequate coverage). Experienced legal counsel is essential for successfully defending against defect claims in this niche area of law. Contact our law office in Kansas City to arrange a consultation and get the support you need.
