Construction And Design Defects In Condos: The Legal Implications
New Orleans is seeing a massive boom in construction. New condominiums are popping up everywhere. This high demand has serious downfalls.
The high turnaround on construction means more and more corners are being cut. Low-quality work and substandard techniques are being used far too often. This means:
- Building code violations
- Contract violations
- Design defects
- Unsafe site selection or site preparation
- Construction defects
- Property damage
- Equipment failures
- Developer litigation
As a condo association board member, contractor or other responsible party, you are vulnerable. The smartest thing you can do to prevent or solve problems is to hire an experienced lawyer.
How I Can Protect Your Interests
I am a licensed contractor and experienced lawyer. I represent numerous clients every year in insurance claims and contract violations, specifically for property damage and construction issues. And, I make sure that my clients get the best possible settlement.
Condo litigation typically involves multiple third parties pursued under various theories of liability, mixed with insurance coverage issues. As a contractor and lawyer, I am in a unique position. I understand construction, design and safety standards. I also can unravel coverage issues under the applicable insurance policies. I know what bad work looks like. More importantly, I know professionals in the industry who can properly evaluate your claims.
As an attorney, I write and evaluate construction contracts, so I know what your contract means and how it should have been fulfilled.
You do not have to go into this fight alone and unarmed. Use my knowledge to your advantage.
