Protect Yourself From Construction Defect Claims
Over the course of a construction project, defects can occur for a number of reasons. You may find yourself confronted with a legal claim by the owner of the building on which you are working, holding you accountable for the defect. When this happens, your first step should be contacting a construction lawyer who can defend you from a dangerous legal situation.
As a subcontractor, you are often protected from liability for these issues. Your employer may be responsible or the defects may be attributed to the designer or manufacturer of the materials. However, you will still need an attorney on your side to refute the legal claim against you.
