Why Boutique Construction Law Firms Are Ideal for Complex Construction Claims

When envisioning a lawyer to retain, it's difficult to articulate what makes a great litigation firm. But one thing is definitely true: "Fear the trial attorney who knows his case." Simply stated, it's impossible to bring home a win if you don't know the case inside and out.

Assessment and mitigation of earthquake damage risk

Earthquakes are a fact of life in California, and the challenges for construction companies and property owners are not only to build new structures that will be able to withstand the force of an earthquake but to rehabilitate older buildings so that they are safe. 

Construction defects can damage the value of your home

There are three types of construction defects: workmanship, design and material. Depending on the problem, you may have the right, as a homeowner or new buyer, to have repairs made by the seller or the construction team that led to the defects. In some cases, materials can be replaced by manufacturers, since the defects lie in the materials themselves.

When your insurance claim is denied

When it comes to insurance claims, there are many examples of damages that can prompt people to turn to their insurance company. For example, a construction company may be hit hard by a natural disaster or unexpected challenges that have arisen which involve workers. Construction company owners count on their insurance company to back them up when certain things go wrong. Unfortunately, some construction company owners (and those who own other types of businesses) are let down when their insurance company denies the claim. This happens frequently in Los Angeles and all over California and we know how devastating a denied claim can be.
