When a hillside or mountain community is created in Colorado, developers need to deal with a variety of geologic hazards. Contracting soils may weaken the support around a bridge, leading to collapse. Unstable slopes may prove problematic when building private roadways and other infrastructure.
These are challenges, but Colorado builders have well-accepted construction techniques to minimize these sorts of problems. Unfortunately, builders do not always take the necessary precautions to prevent heaving driveways, sinkholes, washed-out roads and other problems.

Experienced Attorneys Protecting the Interests of Homeowners
Our attorneys have represented many Colorado homeowner associations and individual homeowners in lawsuits seeking compensation for damages caused by:
• Heaving roads and street collapse
• Utility line failures
• Septic system failure
• Street collapse
• Bridge collapse
• Soil erosion
• Road washouts
• Underground water issues
• Leaking irrigation ditches
Experienced, careful homebuilders and developers are often able to prevent future roadway problems by taking adequate precautions during the building stages. To prevent roads from washing out, for example, developers and builders may need to install appropriate drainage pans and channels under the road. Poor drainage systems may result in roads that are impassable and prone to flooding.
If your builder has failed to take these basic precautions, you should not be responsible for dealing with the financial consequences of these damages. Come to our offices today.
A Note About Our Fees
We handle nearly all of our construction defect cases on a contingency fee basis. This means our attorney time costs our clients nothing unless we make a recovery. Our fee equals a percentage of the recovery we obtain from the builder, developer and other responsible parties. (Under Colorado’s ethical rules, even with a contingent fee the client may be liable for certain court costs.)
We work to ensure that after the attorneys’ fees are paid homeowners and homeowners associations have enough money left over to fix the problem. Contact us today for a free consultation.
