Holding the Responsible Accountable
The result of construction negligence is the wide-spread incidents of serious building code and shoddy workmanship. Houses leak, foundations crack, and building materials fail. Also, contaminated materials can make homeowners and their families sick. The usual scenario is that general contractors, subcontractors and component manufacturers refuse to assume responsibility for these problems. If they do respond, they frequently propose “Band-Aid” repairs which are neither durable nor return the property to the quality for which the buyer bargained. So-called “warranties” provide little relief or protection and homeowners are left with huge bills to remediate these deficiencies. It also requires navigating a web of contractor/subcontractor relationships, insurance policies, and bond policies to get the recovery you need to fix your home.
