Construction Defects

A Florida Construction Defects Attorney Here to Help

Americans take pride in development, building new neighborhoods and homes, skyscraper office buildings and retail centers, manufacturing plants, highways that crisscross our country, and the infrastructure that supports our great cities. We rely on the professionalism of engineers and construction companies to create a safe structure designed to withstand the elements.

Often, our investment in what we have built is as emotional as it is financial. Unfortunately, this financial and emotional investment, and our pride, can disappear when construction defects wreak their havoc.

The construction defect attorneys at Searcy Denney are no stranger to the problems that can occur at any stage of the construction process: in faulty design, engineering services, environmental studies, or building material compliance. What’s more, we know that in racing to beat out the competition and complete projects quickly, construction companies sometimes use unskilled subcontractors and cut corners.

Florida Construction Dispute Lawyers Investigate Your Case

In Florida, the construction industry is challenged not only by weather conditions, but by requirements for windstorm and flood protection, environmental mitigation, and construction techniques new to the industry. When you add design and engineering flaws to these challenges, substantial problems can emerge: for example, pooling rain water on roofs, balconies, or roads; flooded foundations, cracked slabs, mold or termite infestations; and countless other dangers that threaten our safety.

Disputes over construction defects can include:

  • Construction negligence
  • Water seepage
  • Toxic mold
  • Design defects
  • Compromised structural integrity
  • Inspections that filed to detect structural or other damage

Whether your construction problem is based on faulty design, noncompliance with regulations or other issues, our construction defect legal team conducts a meticulous investigation to determine the cause. Then we pursue your claim aggressively, and if it is not resolved, we do not hesitate to take it to court.

Construction cranes and buildingAt Searcy Denney, we understand the importance of safety regulations and building codes. These rules have been developed over the years and have served to keep citizens safe in public and private structures.

But when these safeguards fail, we know that victims need an experienced legal team.

Our reputation is built on our passion for seeking justice for victims of someone else’s negligence. But we bring more than just passion to the table – we bring more than 40 years of experience, seasoned attorneys, skilled investigators and nationally-recognized experts who are not afraid to take on architects, planners, designers, engineers, builders and contractors, or road construction companies and hold them accountable for restitution.
