Steinberg Law Firm Now Handles Construction Defect Cases
Steinberg Law Firm announces its expansion into the area of construction law, representing homeowners and property owners’ associations seeking compensation for defective construction.
Construction defects are any part of a building that does not meet a standard that part is required to comply with. Under South Carolina law, everyone who worked on or developed a home was required to make it habitable and required to perform their work following the building code and industry standards. If a home has any issues, it likely does not meet these standards. Construction defects cause property damage that lower the value of a home or condo, reduce the useful life of the building, and in some cases, are safety and health hazards to the people living in and around the building.
Some construction defects are immediately observable whereas others are not noticeable until years after the home was completed. For example, defects can be hidden inside the walls, foundation, or roof and not noticeable until the defect causes damages in other parts of the house. Determining the full extent of construction defects in a building and the legal remedies for addressing those defects usually requires an experienced construction lawyer assisted by an expert engineer or architect.
The addition of the practice area coincides with the arrival of the firm’s newest associate, Elliotte Quinn, an accomplished construction lawyer who uses his knowledge from previously defending several of the largest national homebuilders to help homeowners with construction defect claims.
Construction problems present complex issues, both legal and technical. It is difficult for a homeowner without a lawyer to have a fair shot when trying to get a builder to fix or pay for a problem in a home. The big homebuilders have teams of lawyers experienced in the legal issues, construction professionals who understand the technical details, and architects and engineers who regularly provide them with expert opinions.
Having a lawyer on the homeowner’s side levels the playing field and makes it possible for the homeowner to get everything deserved as compensation for the builder’s mistakes.
