The laws and regulations pertaining to construction in this country are quite strict. Unfortunately, there are a number of these professionals who are willing to gamble that they will not be caught. By doing so, they endanger the safety of a building’s future occupants. Whether to save on time, labor costs, or expenses for materials, there are many attractive reasons to provide substandard work without regard to safety.
If you have been injured by the work of a negligent construction company, or in an accident on another party’s property that occurred as a consequence of a construction defect, a legal claim can help you to hold negligent parties accountable for your suffering.

Accidents Associated with Construction Defects
The laws governing construction work have been so extensively developed because a flawed building or other structure presents a major hazard to its occupants and nearby people. Some accidents that are associated with construction defects include:
- Porch collapse
- Stairway collapse
- Roof collapse
- Floor collapse
- Uneven stairs
- Exposed or unsafe wiring
- The use of toxic substances and materials
When accidents like these are caused by substandard construction or the use of low-quality materials, negligent construction companies can sometimes be held responsible for the harm they cause to others.
