“Construction Defect Claims in the Concrete Industry: An Overview,” Modern Contractor Solutions

July 25, 2019

Partner Thomas More Buckley of the Construction practice group discusses the types of concrete defects in construction defect claims that can be used in construction defect litigation.

In “Construction Defect Claims in the Concrete Industry: An Overview,” Thomas explains three different types of defects that can be used in a claim: design defects, material defects, and workmanship.

“Claims can also stem from a combination of these aspects. A lawyer may state a combination of some or all of these claims in an initial demand or pleading, pursuing claims as broadly as possible to cover all avenues of recovery. At the time a claim is made, it is not always clear what evidence will be available to support that claim once litigation and discovery ensue.”
