Our homes are a refuge – a place where we and our loved ones should be safe from harm. However, every year thousands of homeowners and their family members suffer serious personal injury or death due to construction defects, such as home fires or balcony or deck collapses. If you are injured due to a construction defect, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages and medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering.
Handling Insurance Disputes from Construction Defects
Our Construction Defect and Bad Faith Insurance Litigation groups work together to represent people engaged in insurance disputes arising from construction defects. Insurance disputes typically involve an insurance company’s failure to pay the benefits they promised they would pay, or failure to do so promptly and in the proper amounts, and this action may be bad faith (a breach of the duty of good faith and fair dealing). If you suspect that an insurance company is acting in bad faith by refusing to live up to their promises and provide you the insurance coverage owed to you, you may be entitled to file a bad faith claim against the insurance company.
Handling Serious Personal Injury Claims from Construction Defects
We also represent people who have suffered a serious injury or whose loved one has been killed (wrongful death) as the result of a construction defect. Serious personal injury claims can arise from a variety of construction defects, including:
- Building collapse
- Rock falls
- Fires and explosions
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Private roadway failures
- Balcony or deck failures
- Falling ice

Our experience as construction defect attorneys helps our injured clients, because we understand the obligations of construction companies.
