Tulsa Construction Lawyer for Construction Defect Claims
Alleged construction defects tend to be complicated litigations that can involve huge stakes, tricky issues and many potential parties. Whether you are faced with a claim or for an alleged construction defect or you are a party seeking compensation for a construction defect, you want an attorney in your corner who knows construction.
Construction Defect Litigation
Construction defect claims typically surface after a project is complete, though, they can also arise before completion. Several different legal theories may apply. Usually there is claim related to breach of contract, however, breach of warranty, negligence and strict product liability causes of action may be relevant with certain facts and parties.
After an alleged defect is identified it can take some time to identify all of the relevant parties on both sides. On plaintiff’s side there may be a property owner or a group of property owners as with some residential and commercial projects. On the defendant’s side developers, contractors and subcontractors may all face liability in certain circumstances.
Forensic construction experts may be hired by both sides early in this process to inspect the project at issue. This may happen long before any litigation or before any settlement offer. After the parties have established their positions on the construction conditions, relevant agreements and obligations and the applicability of any statutes of limitation, a dispute may commence if the parties cannot agree to any settlement.
