Contact Burg Simpson’s Construction Defect Attorneys Now

When you discover a construction defect, it is important to contact a Colorado construction defect attorney as soon as possible. Due to laws that govern statutes of limitation, homeowners and associations have a limited amount of time to bring a claim. If you do not file within the specified time restraints, you may forfeit your right to seek resolution. Generally, the time frame in which to file a construction defect claim is two years from the date that you become aware or should have become aware of the defect.

Dispute Resolution

Colorado requires individuals involved in construction defect disputes to attempt to negotiate matters outside of the courtroom before they are allowed to file a lawsuit. If the matters cannot be resolved through alternative methods of dispute resolution, then litigation may follow.
