The statue of limitations for construction defects and shoddy workmanship is complicated since you may not discover design and construction problems right away. Like other business law, construction defect claims are often very complex, impacted by factors such as regulatory compliance; insurance policies, which differ from state to state; and legal ramifications related to construction companies, contractors and subcontractors.

Trammell Piazza Law Firm represents a number of municipalities, commercial and governmental entities in matters of construction defect claims. Trammell Piazza recently resolved two construction defect claims for a county regarding a county-owned building and a school district over a new school building.  The settlements were for significant dollar amounts and provided the funding for the county and the school district to make costly and necessary repairs to their buildings. Trammell Piazza pursued both matters on a contingent fee basis – putting our clients on an equal playing field with the defendants. This allowed them to pursue the responsible parties for defective workmanship without paying hourly attorney’s fees.
