Construction defects can quickly turn a building project into a legal battlefield – whether you are the company being sued for an alleged defect or the homeowner bringing a claim because of foundation cracks in your new home. Construction law is complex, and often involves extensive local and state building codes, and myriad parties who worked on the project, including builders, owners, general contractors, and subcontractors. If you are involved in a construction defect claim, one of the most important steps you can take to secure your rights is to immediately contact an attorney experienced in construction law. Informed legal advice can help you understand all of your legal options and can make a real difference in the outcome of your case.
The Pinto Coates Kyre & Bowers firm has handled construction defect cases on behalf of numerous clients – both those filing claims and those who have been sued. We understand that whether you are a building owner, developer, contractor, homeowner, or other involved party, you have legal rights which will impact how your dispute is resolved. Under North Carolina law, construction defect claims may be filed years after completion of the project. This means that evidence can be difficult to track down, creating significant challenges to establishing or defending a claim. Having the right legal representation is key; an experienced construction litigation attorney will know what type of documentation to look for, which expert witnesses to consult, and how to carefully build a strong case on your behalf.
PCKB also handles construction lawsuits involving allegations of breach of contract, construction liens under Chapter 44A of the North Carolina General Statutes, and other related issues. We have experience representing every type of party in the construction industry, including property owners, general contractors, and subcontractors. Construction contracts, as well as the lien laws, are very complicated, and it helps to hire a law firm with experience in this field.
