The design and construction of safe buildings is something that we tend to take for granted. After all, we have an expectation of safety that is based upon the presence of extensive regulation of building standards and laws intended to punish those who violate them.
But profit can be a powerful motivator, and occasionally a contractor or construction company makes the decision to take chances with the welfare of a building’s future occupants so that they can make money in the present. This negligence may be represented by the use of poor quality materials, substandard methods of construction, or even accepting a job for which one is not qualified.
If you or your loved one has been injured in an accident caused by a construction defect then you may be able to file a civil lawsuit against either the builder or the property owner, depending upon the specific details of the situation.

POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS CONSTRUCTION DEFECTS
Building inspectors are supposed to identify these dangers, but sometimes it is simply impossible for them to do so, and the following hazardous consequences may arise as a result:
It is a truly regrettable yet unavoidable fact that a property owner may have little reason to suspect the presence of a construction defect until an accident associated with a particular flaw has occurred. If you or a member of your family has been harmed by a poorly built structure, you may have grounds for legal action.
The medical bills and other damages that you have likely incurred as a result of a construction defect are apt to be extensive. A successful legal action can gain you the financial compensation that you deserve for your injuries. Contact the Charleston personal injury lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800.
