Construction Defect Claims

The term "construction defect" encompasses a wide range of alleged circumstances that may result in liability issues such as:

  • Architectural design defects
  • Engineering defects
  • Faulty materials defects
  • Construction delays
  • Poor workmanship
  • Failure to build to code

Any individual or business with interests in a property may bring a construction defect claim. A property owner, a developer, a purchaser or commercial tenant, a lender or a professional may bring a construction defect claim or need an attorney's defense in a lawsuit alleging defects like these.

Houston's building boom in recent years has sometimes created workforce shortages, materials shortages and delays. Even people and businesses that prefer not to be litigious sometimes find themselves with no choice after they have not been paid or have experienced delays in being able to inhabit their planned new buildings or newly remodeled spaces. A potential premises liability case may become a construction defect case when a plaintiff's lawyer uncovers alleged evidence that stairs were not built to code and someone got hurt on those stairs. These are a few examples of construction defect claims.
