Attorney Scott Glovsky
Serving the Claremont & Pasadena Area
Individuals and business owners expect their properties to be defect-free. Commercial building owners, hotel operators, and homeowners rely on the safety, soundness, and quality of their property. They purchase their buildings or remodel their properties with the expectation that their buildings and remodels are free of defects. Competent and well-intentioned builders using quality materials and supplies generally build their properties. Yet each year in Southern California there are thousands of lawsuits involving construction defects, breach of contracts, and product defects filed against general contractors, developers, builders, subcontractors, manufacturers, and material suppliers. For assistance with your lawsuit, consult with a Los Angeles, Claremont, and Pasadena construction defect and disputes lawyer. Our experienced attorneys can assist in advocating on your behalf and ensuring that you know what to expect.
Dealing With a Construction Defect Claim
What we do:
Our Los Angeles County construction defect and dispute lawyers help people, businesses and organizations get benefits from their insurance companies. Most buyers and builders have some form of insurance to cover the kinds of damages or expenses involved in construction defect disputes. But in many cases, the insurance company doesn’t want to pay or pay full value.
Who we help:
- Property owners – individual homeowners and business property owners
- Manufacturers and suppliers of building materials
We accept many cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t pay unless you get paid.
Our experiences and knowledge cover California laws and regulations involving both construction defect claims and liability insurance claims. We’ve helped insurance policyholders resolve disputes with insurance companies since 1999.
Property transactions often involve buyers and builders. Both buyers and builders can purchase insurance to protect their activities. Buyers may have warranty and property insurance that covers the quality and safety of their property. Builders and material providers and suppliers have insurance to cover the costs of suits against them and for the damages that may be awarded from those suits.
For example, assume a homeowner sues a builder over a faulty foundation. The builder makes a claim under his liability insurance policy. But the insurance company denies the claim based on the damage being a non covered “occurrence.” Our Los Angeles, Claremont, and Pasadena construction defect injury lawyers will use their insurance knowledge to seek insurance coverage for the damages.
