Everett Spokane Seattle

Construction defects can quickly become a nightmare, and not just because you have something that needs to be fixed. Often, there is no simple fix, especially if the problem is more than cosmetic. There are also times when the person responsible for the defect will put up a fight and resist taking any responsibility for the problem.

At Russell & Hill, PLLC, we want to help make sure that you are treated fairly when you need to remedy a construction defect situation. This includes making sure you get the compensation you need to fix the problem as well as coverage of expenses beyond the repair you may have incurred. When you need a Bellevue construction defect attorney, call us today.

How Did It Happen?

Construction defects can become complicated quickly. Most people only think these problems are cosmetic and easy to fix, but that is often not the case. Construction defects can cause real harm to people.

  1. If the defect has caused the structural integrity of the building to be compromised, it can lead to problems for every other part of the building. Structural compromise can happen if there is a problem with the foundation, if faulty frame materials are used, or building codes were ignored.
  2. Electrical wiring problems can cause fire hazards. Electricians have strict codes to follow. Failing to do so can cause major harm.
  3. Poor workmanship can occur at all levels of a project, from setting the foundation to finishing the walls.

It needs to be determined whether a construction defect happened during the design phase (architects and planners) or during the construction phase (contractors and other workers). This will help determine who is ultimately responsible for any damages and injuries.

Taking these cases to court can be difficult, which is why it is important to review your case with a qualified and experienced attorney. Often, the problems caused by a defect are not discovered until years after the completion of construction. You will need to line up all of the documents, get expert witnesses to testify on your behalf, and contact everyone who was involved in the construction of the building.

Please note: In Washington, you are required to notify the party you believe is responsible for the defect and give them a chance to fix the problem. However, if their negligence has caused an injury, you can certainly pursue a lawsuit.

Do You Have Options?

Construction defects can be more complicated than simply fixing the problem. By the time someone accepts responsibility for what happened, there will likely be many other expenses. If the incident deals with a private residence, you may not have been able to move in on time. This can cause you to incur rental expenses you did not plan on. If a business has been affected, how many customers were lost?

At Russell & Hill, PLLC, we will work to ensure that you are compensated for all of your expenses. When you need a Bellevue construction defect attorney, you can contact us for a free consultation by clicking here or calling 800-529-0842.
