San Diego, CA Structural Defects Attorneys
Construction Structural Defect Lawyers in Southern California
When the structure of a building is not sound, the results can be devastating, both physically and financially. Structural defects can render a building unsafe to live in or occupy. Correcting these problems can be exorbitantly expensive. If you discover a structural defect on your property, it is important to have it investigated right away. If it is determined that the defect was due to something the builder or contractor did or did not do and it is within the 10 year Statute of Limitations, you may be able to file a civil lawsuit to compel the builder to repair the problem or pay to have it repaired. At the law firm of Martinez & Schill LLP, we are skilled in construction defect negotiation and litigation. Our San Diego construction defect lawyers help clients resolve matters related to structural defects and other construction problems as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Damages from Structural Defects in California
A structural defect is a very serious problem. Besides the high cost of having the problem repaired, you may have to move out of your home or commercial property for a period of time while repairs are being made. You may also have to remove and store your furniture and other goods. In a successful negotiation, the builder (or the builder’s insurance company) will also compensate you for relocation and storage costs.
Whether you are dealing with a cracked foundation, improper load bearing wall, or any other type of structural defect, it is critical to secure the opinion of an experienced and qualified structural engineer. It is important that repairs are executed properly in order to prevent future problems and further litigation. Our firm has relationships with construction experts of all kinds, and we can help you get the structural inspection necessary to move forward with a construction defect case.
