Allegations of construction defects must be strongly defended

On Behalf of Dunlap Fiore, LLC |

Louisiana construction is a booming business in the public and private sector, commercial and residential. Companies that provide a variety of services in the construction industry will seek to maintain and expand their business by doing quality work. Of course, every business requires legal protection from allegations of errors or construction defects. These happen quite often. When working in this industry, it is imperative to have that strong defense if the issue in dispute is not the fault of the construction company as there are multiple negative impacts that can come from a legal filing.

If the company is accused of doing poor work on a project, does not adhere to the plans, creates a dangerous situation, does not complete the work, or commits some form of financial impropriety, it can severely damage the business not just in its finances, but in its reputation as well. Those who are dealing with any of these issues should keep in mind that they must protect themselves in myriad ways.

With any construction project, it is nearly unavoidable that mistakes will be made, disagreements will be had, and misunderstandings will arise. Companies can try to rectify the issue to please the customer, but in some cases, that is not possible and litigation results. Defending against construction defects is vital to the health of the business. This expands beyond a construction company and is imperative for equipment suppliers, contractors, subcontractors, architects and more.

Whether it is financial, there are completion delays, defects exist in the structure of a project, the work is alleged to be defective, there are changed conditions, the design is defective or anything else, those who are dealing with assertions and accusations of construction defects in their work should contact a law firm that understands business and specializes in helping those in the construction industry. This is crucial to dealing with and settling cases that could hinder a business and cause long-term problems.
