With all the explosive growth of both residential and commercial building projects in Florida, it’s no wonder that many contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, and consumers are engaged in legal battles extending from construction non-performance issues. The property owner has a legal right to expect contractors to perform defect-free work and when problems arise many times the only solution to faulty construction is to seek a legal remedy.  Construction defects come in all shapes, sizes, and degrees including roof, window, and door leaks causing water intrusion, foundation issues, building code violations, mold and remediation issues and unexplained changes to original designs just to name a few. Unfortunately, construction defect cases can become extremely complicated due to the number of involved parties in any building project. The construction industry is a unique mixture of architects, general contractors, engineers, developers, material suppliers, subcontractors, and property owners all having their hands in agreeing to and completing a project. The lines of due-diligence become unclear many times and it takes an experienced and dedicated construction law attorney to sort out the matters oftentimes leaving plaintiffs who are seeking a remedy to their issues no choice but to pursue litigation. At Heekin Litigation Group we have a dedicated and experienced team of construction law attorneys who understand the complexities of issues and the Florida regulations and laws involved in construction, ready to resolve amicably if possible, your disputes. Enlisting a knowledgeable construction law attorney is the first step in protecting your rights and financial interests. Approaching any construction defect takes judgment and sometimes the enlistment of experts to sort out the details and identify who specifically is responsible for the defect (s). Designing a legal strategy to achieve a positive resolution either through negotiation or litigation is our goal. Generally, construction law claims involve everything from commercial buildouts and new commercial construction to residential construction and even remodeling projects. Most construction law claimants are commercial or residential property owners unsatisfied with the building of a dwelling, faced with unfinished work or poor workmanship during construction leading to defects and building issues that need to be resolved. Even architects accused of defective designs or material suppliers who delivered defective materials could be subject to and responsible for, the defective outcome. Whether you are the target of a construction defect or are pursuing a construction defect lawsuit, we are here to help.
