Consult With a Seattle Construction Defect Attorney
Our real estate and construction law attorneys are available to examine and explore your options after a construction defect has resulted in loss or injury or has been brought against you or your company. Questions we are prepared to work hard to find answers to include:
- Was the quality of workmanship in compliance with all rules and regulations — and with standards evident in comparable buildings?
- Were terms of the contract adhered to?
- If there was a change order, was it authorized?
- Did construction work fall within the scope of the contract?
- Who owes whom for work done, and was the work done properly?
- Were property defects disclosed to a buyer?
- Is the builder guilty of “failure to perform” construction work that was agreed upon?
- Did the construction project comply with statutory requirements?
- Did the construction breach an implied warranty of habitability?
Answers to these questions will help determine whether you have a viable construction defect claim against any party or parties. Our accomplished trial lawyers are a valuable source of information and advocacy for people who have been wronged in construction defect cases.
