The right construction defect knowledge can make a case

Many Minnesotans will deal with a construction project at some point in their lives. Whether it is building their own house or business, making repairs to existing structures or creating additions, construction projects are common.

Salmonella is a dangerous bacterial infection that puts people at risk. In particular, people with a weakened immune system, the elderly and the very young are susceptible to its effects.
