Wide range of parties could face construction defect litigation

Litigation sometimes comes up in relation to a construction project after the project is completed. One such type of litigation is litigation over an alleged construction defect. 

Who could face liability for a given construction defect depends on the nature of the defect and the circumstances surrounding it. Construction defects come in numerous varieties and the situations in which they come about can vary considerably. This, combined with the fact that many different parties can be involved in a construction project, makes it so the range of parties that could potentially face litigation in relation to construction defect allegations is quite wide.

Examples of parties that could end up being defendants in construction defect cases include:

  • Developers.
  • Builders.
  • Contractors.
  • Architects.
  • Designers.

When a party was involved in a construction project and defect allegations arise in relation to the project, it can be important for them to understand if they are among the parties that could be facing litigation over the allegations. This is because the sooner a party is aware of a potential construction-related legal problem, the more options may be available to them for addressing the problem and the sooner they can take steps to try to minimize the potential effects the problem could have on their business and its operations. Skilled construction litigation lawyers can help parties connected to a construction project understand where they stand legally when defect allegations come up. Such attorneys can also assist construction-related businesses navigate the situation when defect litigation ends up being brought against them.
