Experienced Construction Defect Attorney

Trial lawyer Bart Gernander has long practiced in construction law and has handled a wide range of construction defect cases:

  • Water intrusion, leaks and mold
  • Structural defects (foundation, walls, roof)
  • Soil erosion or settling/sinking
  • Sewage and drainage issues
  • Electrical or plumbing problems
  • Unacceptable craftsmanship (cabinetry, counters, ceilings, etc.)
  • Non-performance
  • Construction delays
  • Cost overruns
  • Failure to disclose known defects (misrepresentation claims)

We handle cases involving new construction or remodeling work, as well as claims of pre-existing defects.  These pre-existing defect claims may include misrepresentation by sellers of real property (through failing to disclose known defects).

On behalf of owners, we pursue action against all parties who bear responsibility for the defects (general contractor, subcontractors, architects, engineers and/or material suppliers).  We obtain relief, either in the form of repairs to the defects, or a money judgment to cover the cost of repairs.

There are strict limits on the period of time in which you must pursue construction defect claims, and failure to pursue your claims within those limits can result in all of your claims being barred.  Therefore, if you have any questions about construction defects, call us at 952-232-5991 or 866-291-4854 to explore your case in a free initial discussion.
