Protecting The Interests Of Homeowners And Commercial Clients In Construction Defect Litigation

In the post-recession economy, home production and commercial development have increased significantly. However, homeowners and commercial property owners are discovering that their new homes, offices and other buildings are suffering from serious defects that should have been addressed by contractors, subcontractors and other responsible parties. Structural defects and design flaws pose serious financial, safety and liability issues for consumers and businesses.

Representing Individuals And Businesses In Construction Defect Litigation

At Morton & Germany, PLLC, we know firsthand that construction defects are often difficult to detect. In many cases, seemingly insignificant symptoms indicate a much larger underlying defect, but these issues only come to light once the damage has been done. Our attorneys will work closely with you while explaining the laws governing time limits, procedures and deadlines for identifying and asserting construction defect claims.

Whether faced with a defective design issue, failure to pay, incomplete work or other matters, we will explain Tennessee's construction laws, licensing issues, warranty laws as well as breach of contract issues that may factor into your case. As experienced litigators, we understand how to manage legal objectives with financial realities. We can help mitigate delays and additional costs by exploring options for mediation or arbitration all while keeping you fully informed of developments that impact your bottom line.

Some of the most common types of commercial and residential construction cases we handle involve:

  • Synthetic stucco (exterior insulation and finish systems or "EIFS")
