A construction defect is a flaw in a building or structure that reduces the value of the property. Construction defects can occur for a variety of reasons, including poor workmanship, use of faulty materials and errors in engineering. If you are engaged in a legal dispute centering on a construction defect, it is important to consult with an experienced construction litigation attorney.

Handling Construction Defect Lawsuits in Texas
Construction defects can result in significant financial loss for the buyer of a residential or commercial property. Examples of common construction defects include:
- Faulty plumbing
- Faulty electrical systems
- Foundation cracks
- Leaky roofs
- Structural failure
- Toxic mold
- Defects in landscaping and soil
Many construction defect cases are settled through negotiation and settlement. However, I prepare every case for trial, to maintain maximum leverage at the negotiating table. Frequently, construction contracts call for the parties to resolve defect disputes in arbitration. When necessary, I can work to achieve your goals in this forum as well.
