Poorly Constructed Buildings And How To Build Your Litigation Case

Most of the time, construction contractors that know what they are doing, and they make every effort to do the job right. However, sometimes contractors cut corners or make mistakes. If you are unfortunate enough to end up with a contractor that does sloppy work, switches materials to make a profit, and constructs a poor quality building that could be a hazard, here is what your construction litigation attorney would have to say about that. 

Start by Suing the Crew

The construction crew would know if their boss was shifty. Even more importantly, they could act as testimony witnesses to any and all illegal business practices in which their employer engages. By choosing to sue them first, you are likely to get more out of them for witness testimony than you would attempting to sue the contractor directly. If you can get the crew to rat out the boss, then you might be able to let the crew go because you got what you needed; proof. 

Then Sue the Construction Bond Company

If the contractor is bonded for the building you requested to be built, sue the bond company. This is either an actual company or one or more private investors that use construction bonds to pad their portfolios. Regardless of who or what provided the bond to the contractor, sue them. It is their responsibility to make sure that the contractor follows through on his/her contract with you, the consumer, and that the completed job is safe, completed on time, and ready to use. When the bond company or investors fail to do their job, then consumers suffer and contractors need to be sued. 

Finally, Sue the Contractor

Sue the contractor. You went after the contractor's employees to get some witnesses, and then you went after the bonding agent that failed to force the contractor to abide by the contractual laws. Suing the contractor is just the tip of the iceberg. As an added bonus, consider suing the contractor's insurance company for any extra compensation to cover the costs of fixing or replacing the poorly built structure that now sits on your property and cannot be used for safety reasons. 

Your Lawyer Can Get Records and Receipts Too

Make sure your lawyer gets the records and receipts of purchase for materials from the contractor. These are helpful in proving any case where there is a suspected bait-and-switch game with building materials. It also supports your defense that the contractor was intentionally doing poor work by using lesser materials.
