Construction Defects

We use our knowledge of insurance to solve construction defect problems

We represent clients with construction defect problems. But that takes more than just knowing construction. We use our understanding of liability and property insurance to locate the funds to fix our clients’ buildings.

A business recently came to us with what they thought was a property insurance claim. We identified a claim against the party responsible for the client’s faulty construction—then found the primary and excess liability insurance to fund the client’s $4 million-plus repair.

In another case, a defendant’s imminent bankruptcy threatened to leave our client with no means of recovery. We found the key to triggering the defendant’s liability insurance. Then we discovered the same insurer had issued property insurance to our client. The combined two “pockets” of the insurer were enough to fund our clients’ repairs after a multi-million dollar settlement.

Knowing how to litigate the construction side of a “CD” case is only half the battle. Our lawyers also get the other side of the equation—finding the insurance money to pay for the repairs.

We represent:

  • Property owners, developers, and contractors who are seeking to recover damages from third parties for construction defects
  • Developers, owners, and contractors (or their lawyers) who need advice on how to get a defendant’s liability insurance to pay
  • Apartment owners and condominium owners seeking property insurance coverage for water-related building damage
