Construction defects can result in serious personal injury to occupants of a building and significant financial loss to the building owner. Because the issues are complex and difficult to prove in such cases, you will need an experienced Austin construction defect attorney to investigate the cause.
Any number of problems can occur in the construction of a building, but common issues an Austin construction defect attorney report include:
In some cases, the legal theory your Austin construction defect attorney will use to prove liability will be based on unfair business practices. Examples include a failure on the part of a construction company to investigate a complaint about a defect or to acknowledge one when the evidence points to such a conclusion. A failure to disclose known defects in design, materials or workmanship can lead to significant injuries and damages.
While some construction defects are obvious, many are not readily discernible initially. Some signs to look for, especially in a newer building less than three years old are window leaks, roof leaks, stained or cracking drywall, difficulty operating windows or doors, cracked foundations or slabs and standing water in basements or crawl spaces.
If you have any reason to suspect the building you are living in or own has a construction defect, you need to learn the facts and explore your options. Call the experienced Austin Construction Defect Attorney of Nunis & Associates at (512) 236-9696.
