|Construction and Construction Defect|
Construction and construction defect litigation is complex and requires expertise in several areas of the law including: contracts, product liability, architects, engineers, toxic tort and insurance issues. Also, OSHA and other regulatory standards tend to complicate cases that frequently involve large sums of money and multiple parties. Our experience includes all of these fields of law and provides our clients with a knowledgeable and efficient defense of their construction and construction defect litigation.
Kiernan Trebach lawyers presently handle an array of cases that range from claims of severe bodily injury resulting from exposure to toxic substances to economic loss claims based upon alleged failure of construction materials or poor workmanship and construction defect. The Firm’s attorneys are also at the forefront of significant, building-related cases involving alleged exposure to mold and toxic fumes, arising from defects in the design of major commercial structures, or deficient techniques in construction and remediation. (See Environmental Law).
