During the past year, New Jerseyans spent more time at home than ever before. This led to many homeowners deciding it was finally time to do that home remodeling project they had been putting off.
Then the Garden State got hit by massive storms that flooded many homes and businesses. Clean up and repairs took the already booming construction and remodeling industry to new heights.
Finding a contractor that will do a decent job at a decent price for a remodeling or repair project has become increasingly difficult since demand for them is so high. Many are rushing from job to job in order to get as many things as they can while the market is hot, and mistakes are being made. High demand has also opened the door for fly-by-night operators to set up shop.
Construction accidents and shoddy workmanship that causes injuries are on the rise. The Levin & Malkin team is here to assist North Jersey residents who have been injured after having construction work done in their home.
Personal injury lawsuits can be filed over poor work quality or performance and the damage it causes. Depending on the circumstances, the lawsuit may allege negligence, breach of contract, product defects, or construction defects. It may also be possible to seek compensation for property damage.
Lawsuits are typically filed against the main contractor in the case, but it may also be wise to take legal action against:
- The architect or engineers who planned the work;
- Various subcontractors like plumbers or electricians;
- Any inspector who inspected the poor work and declared it to be okay; and
- The company that manufactured the products involved in the injury.
The Levin & Malkin team will examine the available evidence, and help you figure out who was responsible for your injury. We will then work to hold them accountable and get you the money you need to treat your injuries and get on the road to recovery.
Speak With An Experienced Attorney About Your Case
While your homeowners insurance or other insurance may offer you a lump sum settlement, it is always wise to speak to an experienced personal injury attorney like those of us at Levin & Malkin about your case. Insurance companies try to pay out as little as they possibly can, so what they are offering may not be enough to fully compensate you even if it seems like a generous offer.
