If you suspect that your home was built or designed negligently or with defective materials, call Murray & Damschen, P.C., today for a free assessment of your case.
Representing Homeowners Throughout Colorado in Expansive Soils Arbitration and Litigation
The construction defect litigation attorneys at Murray & Damschen, P.C., recognize that most home purchasers place a great deal of trust in their builders. They expect the builder to utilize only qualified professionals and subcontractors to construct a home that meets all applicable building codes and industry standards for good construction. They reasonably expect that the builder will use sound construction methods that do not place the purchaser in a position to deal with undisclosed risks of future damage after they have purchase their home. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. No matter how good your builder's intentions may have been, defects in design or workmanship can lead to serious damages that can endanger your family and your largest financial investment. We are a leading construction defect litigation firm that works to protect the interests of homeowners. Our firm has focused on Construction Defect cases in Colorado for well over 10 years and have represented hundreds of Colorado homeowners in negligence and breach of contract litigation and other lawsuits related to a wide range of residential construction defects.
Even if you are not the original purchaser of your home, you may have rights to pursue a claim against the builder of the home for construction defects. You may also have legal claims against others who may be responsible for your home's problems, such as subcontractors, engineers and material suppliers.
The developer, general contractor, subcontractors and designers can all face legal liability for damage from construction defects. In some cases, material manufacturers or suppliers can also have liability for construction defects caused by the use of their defective products. However, the developer or general contractor is generally responsible for its own actions, as well as for the actions of its designers, engineers and subcontractors. Therefore, homeowners often bring claim against the developer or general contractor, who may then decide to involve others who may be at fault.
We help homeowners identify qualified and experienced construction experts and forensic engineers to evaluate problems, explore repair alternatives and prepare cost estimates.
