Colorado Construction Defects

Failing Roadways and Infrastructure – Colorado Construction Defect Attorneys

Failing Infrastructure - Denver Construction Defect Attorneys - Colorado Burg Simpson When a developer establishes a hillside or mountain community in Colorado, they need to deal with a variety of geological hazards. Contracting soils can weaken the support around a bridge, leading to collapse. Unstable slopes can prove problematic when building private roadways and other infrastructure.

These are challenges, but Colorado builders have established construction techniques to address these types of problems. Unfortunately, builders don’t always take the necessary precautions to prevent common infrastructure problems, such as:

  • Heaving driveways – If the concrete in your driveway looks higher in the middle than on either side, if the sides are crumbling, or if cracks are appearing across the width of your driveway, it’s probably heaving. This is typically caused by problematic soil conditions that weren’t addressed in the construction process.
  • Sinkholes – Signs of a sinkhole on your property can include smaller holes in the ground, cracks in the foundation, the wall or the floors, and/or water pooling in the yard. It’s typically caused by either natural or man-made erosion of the surface soil.
  • Roads – The latest report from the U.S. Department of Transportation reveals that more than 20 percent of Colorado’s roadways are in poor condition and nearly 6 percent of the state’s bridges are structurally deficient.

Our Colorado construction defect attorneys have extensive experience reviewing and analyzing this information and working with consulting architects and engineers to help homeowners and homeowner associations determine whether their construction defects are the result of design errors that might warrant or require claims against design professionals involved in the design and construction of their home or community. Call Burg Simpson today at 303-792-5595 or fill out our FREE CASE EVALUATION form now.

Our Denver construction defect attorneys have represented many Colorado homeowner associations and individual homeowners in lawsuits seeking compensation for damages caused by:

  • Heaving roads and street collapse.
  • Sinkholes.
  • Utility line failures.
  • Septic system failure.
  • Street collapse.
  • Bridge collapse.
  • Soil erosion.
  • Road washouts.
  • Underground water issues.
  • Rock falls.
  • Landslides.
  • Leaking irrigation ditches.

Experienced, careful homebuilders and developers are equipped to prevent future roadway problems by taking adequate precautions during construction. To prevent roads from washing out, for example, developers and builders might need to install appropriate drainage pans and channels under the road. Poor drainage systems can often result in roads that are impassable and prone to flooding.

If your builder has failed to take these basic precautions, you shouldn’t be responsible for dealing with the financial consequences of these damages. Visit our offices today and speak with the Denver construction defect lawyers at Burg Simpson as soon as possible. Call us at 303-792-5595 for a free, no-obligation evaluation of your case.

The ultimate objective of any construction defect law firm should be to address any construction defects you have and make sure they’re fixed permanently. Short-term repairs can be far more costly in the long run, and can even lead to further damages. Our Denver construction defect lawyers at Burg Simpson advise against quick fixes and instead focus on the larger underlying problems.

We work with homeowners – and homeowner associations – to bring experienced architects and engineers to evaluate problems, advise on required repairs, and intelligently estimate costs. We also help our clients deal with more immediate repair needs while their claim makes its way through the system. Burg Simpson is a leading construction defect litigation law firm. If your private roadways have been damaged as a result of construction defects, fill out the form or call us at 303-792-5595 to schedule a free consultation with an experienced construction defects attorney.

A Note about Fees:
We handle nearly all of our construction defect cases on a contingency basis. This means that our clients pay nothing unless – and until – we secure compensation. Our fee equals a percentage of the recovery we obtain from the builder, developer, and any other responsible parties. We work to ensure that after the attorneys’ fees are paid, homeowners and homeowners associations have enough money left to fix all of their defects. Contact us right now for a free consultation.
