Construction Defects and Injuries

Construction Defects and Injuries

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. Contact the Charleston premises liability lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800 to consult with a compassionate and experienced attorney about your case.


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:

  • Stairway collapse
  • Uneven stairs
  • Roof collapse
  • Floor collapse
  • Instability of walls
  • Dangerous wiring errors

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.
