What is a Defective Work Claim in a Construction Dispute?

Defective work disputes are the most common of all construction contract claims. Depending on the project, a working knowledge of structural and mechanical design can determine if the problem stems from work performed or a preexisting condition. Additionally, you can determine if it was caused by the defendant or another company not party to the litigation.

The lawyer investigates the facts, joins any appropriate additional parties, lines up favorable witnesses, selects the right expert, and develops an effective presentation. Our next segment will cover lien claims in construction dispute litigation.

Before you contact an attorney, collect all necessary documents and information related to the potential case. This could be documents related to work done, payments made, any and all correspondence to legitimize any claims. When you have gathered the documents, contact an attorney with a strong track record in the area.
