Have You Been Injured by Poor Workmanship?

Dangerous ceiling at construction siteThe lawyers at Miller Injury Attorneys represent individuals in construction defect litigation related to homes, schools, commercial structures, businesses, apartments and condominiums.

As experienced Sacramento construction defect lawyers, we have been involved in litigation related to numerous types of construction defects.

Leaking pipeSome of our past construction defect cases include:

  • Soils, drainage and settlement issues
  • Roof leaks
  • Window and/or leaks
  • Plumbing leaks
  • Defectively installed foundations and slabs
  • Stucco leaks

Many of these construction defects lead to water intrusion, which can lead to the presence of toxic mold. Mold can develop quickly (in as few as 48 hours).

Don’t wait to hold builders responsible. Call (916) 525-7761 today.

Statutes of Limitations

Although a new home comes with a 1-year written warranty, you have the right to pursue the builder of your home for construction defects for a period of 10 years from the date the home was completed. So, if you have a problem with your home, do not give up just because your builder says your one-year warranty has expired.

Remedies & Damages

The remedies and damages in a construction defect case are numerous and varied. Your home may need to be repaired. Your personal property may need to be cleaned or replaced. You may need to be reimbursed for alternative living expenses during the repairs. Further, even if your home is repaired, depending on the nature and scope of the issue involved, you may have to disclose the repaired condition when you sell your home. This may result in a further “diminution in value” of your residence on resale.

Toxic Mold’s Harmful & Damaging Effects.

Moldy ceilingSomething as simple as a minor water leak may lead to toxic mold infestation in as few as 48 hours. As time passes, the cost of cleanup increases. Someone must pay to fix the water intrusion or leak.

On top of that, mold remediation to the structure of your home may be necessary, which can involve tearing out all sheet rock and other building materials affected by the mold.

This process should be done with appropriate engineering controls and under “containment.” Everything torn out a house must be replaced with new materials.

The scope of “containment” should be established by mold testing through an industrial hygienist. Based on this testing, a “mold remediation protocol”, should be prepared. Personal property damage to furnishings and other belongings as result of water damage and / or mold may also be an issue. Often, these items must be replaced. Other items of personal property can be professionally cleaned.

In addition, victims of toxic mold caused by construction defects often experience a range of health problems and injuries, including headaches, fatigue, nosebleeds, skin rashes, difficulty breathing, asthma and severe allergies.

  • The lawyers actually care!

    “The lawyers actually care, helping my daughter recover the insurance policy limits for her injuries involving a drunk driver.”

  • I feel so fortunate that John took my case. I will be forever grateful.

    “I feel so fortunate that John took my case. I will be forever grateful. I’m a single , working Mom with teenage boys which is stressful enough. We were living in horrible conditions in Redding Ca, landlord did nothing to remedy the issues, instead they retaliated. John was so professional , understanding and kind, We met at mediation about 6 weeks after he took me on as a client, he knew the bigger picture with me wasn’t about money, it was about people being treated Ike they are garbage and don’t deserve to live in a safe environment. John did get more money for us than original quote , but the best part he said he would send a letter to the other tenants and offer to help if they needed it. I can finally sleep at night. I feel like I made a great friend. Thank you so much.”

    “John Miller was a Godsend to me through a very difficult time. John was able to negotiate a settlement with two parties and give me the ability to be made "whole". I highly recommend John to anyone as he is honest, prepared, knowledgeable and kind. I believe that John truly cares about his clients and these days that stands out. John puts his clients at ease and I found that his advice during negotiations was in my best interest at all times. I am blessed to have had John as my attorney.”
