Resolving construction defect disputes

Regular readers of our legal blog know that we often focus in this space on matters involving Florida construction defect disputes. While it can sometimes be difficult for people involved in a project to agree on the existence of a defect, it can be even more difficult to find agreement on defect mitigation and repair and on the crucial question of who will bear financial responsibility for fixing the defect.

How the cyclical nature of construction work contributes to defects

Construction defects - poor workmanship, deviations from building plans, subpar material substitutions and other types of poor-quality work - often involve a common thread: inexperience.

Construction defects can put your business on hold

If you own a business that involves a physical building -- whether a storefront, warehouse or office -- you might at some point need construction work done.

New construction has definite advantages. Building a home (or condominium complex) from scratch, you can incorporate fresh design ideas, greater energy efficiency, built-in "smart" technologies and countless other amenities.

And you don't have to worry about the unknowns of maintenance and repairs that come with existing construction.

Florida lawsuit: Construction defects were hidden, misrepresented

Construction defects can also involve improper soil analysis and preparation, as well as improper site selection.

E-discovery in construction defect cases: What it means and what it covers

In today's digital age, fewer and fewer records are stored in paper form. File cabinets and folders have been replaced by hard drives and cloud storage. Even desktop computers have been eclipsed by mobile technology - tablets, laptops and smartphones.
