Construction Litigation

Construction is fertile ground for disputes. Many times there are miscommunications between a builder and property owner that lead to a bad relationship between the parties. Attorneys at the Bostic Law Firm, PA have represented both contractors and homeowners in many construction cases and are ready to help you in the event that a dispute cannot be easily resolved.

Construction defects can lead to complicated litigation because many of them are not noticeable immediately after completion of a project. Also, some are difficult to trace to their source because there may have been numerous subcontractors involved in a single job or because they have been caused by inferior materials. Common construction defects include:

  • Cracks in foundations, floors, walls and roofs
  • Faulty engineering or architectural plans or specifications
  • Inadequate grading or improper soil preparation or compaction
  • Faulty drainage or improper landscaping
  • Water seepage or improper heating and ventilation (causing dry rot, termites, molds and bacteria)
  • Defective plumbing or electrical systems
  • Defective lighting
  • Inadequate security
  • Substandard building materials
  • Failure to follow material manufacturer’s installation or application instructions
  • Failure to meet applicable building codes
  • Failure to follow engineering or architectural plans or specifications

Monetary compensation generally can include cost of repairing or restoring the property, diminution in value (the difference in market value before and after the injury), and loss of use of the property during the period of damage and repair.

Our South Carolina civil litigation lawyers can represent owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, architects, and engineers in a wide variety of construction related disputes in both state and federal courts. Often we are able to satisfactorily resolve a dispute without the expense of litigation by taking it to arbitration or mediation.
