Construction Defect Claims
Improper construction claims are also often referred to as “construction defect” cases. In the event that poor construction is the cause of an accident, the plaintiff could potentially file a claim against the company and/or individual that constructed the defective object.
What do we mean by poor construction?
- It wasn’t built up to code
- It was not manufactured according to the intended design
- It was built using materials and construction that the defendant could have reasonably known was unsafe or ineffective to perform the intended function
Improper Maintenance of a Structure
Even if a building or structure is constructed up to code, if it remains for long enough, it will decay. It’s a basic second law of thermodynamics scenario. Just as wood rots and metal corrodes, laws and codes change. At the time of your accident, you may have been inside of what was once a safe structure but was not maintained to remain up to current safety standards.
