Construction defects can be very costly. Thus, by filing a legal action, you could hold another party or parties accountable for their mistakes and negligence. This process not only addresses the current defects but also determines the damages suffered as a result. Finally, taking legal action can help ensure the construction project is done correctly.

A construction project might hit a few bumps in a road, such as delays caused by weather. These minor interruptions are expected and frequently prepared. But most are not prepared for a major delay caused by construction defects. A delay alone is costly, but when you add the processes of fixing the known defects, this could result in significant monetary damages. As such, it is important to understand your legal rights and options when it comes to seeking damages through a construction defect legal action.
