Recovery in a defective construction materials claim


Hiring someone to construct something for you can be a big decision, as can choosing to buy an already existing home or business. However, in your haste to get settled into your new structure, you may fail to realize that construction companies are a business out to make money. Though many of these companies provide a valuable service, others cut corners and use defective construction materials in order to make a little extra money. When this happens, your property could be subjected to significant damage that could cost you time, money, and peace of mind.

That is why it is critical for you to consider taking legal action if you are harmed, financially or otherwise, by a defective or dangerous product. Whether it is siding and stucco, landscaping, or roofing, your claim may be able to help you afford the repairs you need and recoup your losses. But what can you recover in one of these lawsuits?

In most instances, a winning lawsuit will result in a monetary award for the cost of repairs and loss of value. This compensation can go a long way toward getting things back on track and ensuring that your home or place of business is as you intended it. You might also be able to recover additional losses, such as punitive damages, if the construction company acted intentionally and recklessly. Other recoverable damages include the loss of the land's use and the cost of temporary lodging

Taking legal action can seem frightening. However, it is often the only way to recoup what is rightfully yours. Succeeding on a claim may put you back in the position you were in prior to the mishap, and you might deter the construction company from acting in a similar fashion again. This means that your bravery might protect not only your own financial well-being, but the well-being of other Minnesotans as well.
