Litigation Cases Involving Construction Defects

Construction defect cases are one of the most common types of litigation cases in Maryland. These cases usually involve multiple allegations of breaches of implied warranties and a breach of contract. There are two types of warranties that are recognized in most states:

  • Express Warranty – This is a promise, or otherwise guarantee, that regards the quality, use, or performance of an item or action. Usually, this warranty is a part of a contract for the sale of goods. 
  • Implied Warranty – As the term sounds, implied warranty is an unspoken guarantee or promise which is usually associated with a manufacturer or company to stand behind its product or services. 

In general, most builder construction litigation cases involving defects will include allegations of an implied warranty. For example, a seller might imply a promise that their roofing products will perform as how a buyer expects them to perform. If they cause an unexpected leak or other problem, a builder construction litigation case may be pursued. 

If you believe you have a viable case for a breach of implied or expressed warranties, we encourage you to call our builder construction litigation lawyers Maryland residents have trusted for years. These types of cases, particularly those involving defects, are often overlooked because they tend to be outside of the four points of a general construction contract. 

Design and Engineer Negligence/Malpractice

Any design professional, such as an architect, engineer, or designer, is obligated to adhere to the standards of due care while they perform any work for clients. If you have suffered a financial loss because of one of these professionals’ wrongdoing, a builder construction litigation lawyer in Maryland may be able to help you recover damages.  We are familiar with cases that may have arose because of:

  • Defective design
  • Design flaws
  • Underestimating expenses
  • Overcharging
  • Failure to comply with zoning laws, permits, or building codes
  • Failure to meet the clients’ specification
  • Misrepresentation
  • Omission of a fact
  • Unreasonable delays
  • Failure to oversee and supervise a site

Cases that involve these kinds of matters typically require expert testimony and experienced legal advocacy. In general, the credibility of the expert witness will make a big difference in the outcome of the case.
