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.

Rave Reviews from
Happy Clients

  • They were there for me.

    “They were there for me, guiding me through a difficult time after my auto accident.”

    Marlissa C.

  • Absolutely Terrific!

    “Mr. Miller was absolutely terrific, settling my difficult fall case quickly and efficiently.”

    Linda O.

  • He was patient, kind and extremely professional.

    “Mr. Miller represented me on a mold case against a former landlord, and management company. He was patient, kind and extremely professional. Although my case wasn't one of the biggie gold mine type cases that many attorneys are looking for, he treated me with respect, collegiality and was able to help me get a settlement through mediation that seemed to be the best option for the quagmire of my particular case. One should always hold negative reviews on here in perspective: often people think their cases are slam-dunks, but as we all know, the legal system is overly complex and not as straight-forward as we all would like it to be. Often cases don't turn out as we'd like them to, but I felt that Mr. Miller was above board regarding the overall merits of my case and he tried to be realistic as to the outcome. I would recommend him and/or avail of his services again.”

    Former Client

  • I put my trust in John Miller and took all of his advice.

    “I contacted John Miller for help after trying to negotiate with two parties that had created a nightmare for me in my home purchase. From the very initial contact, John was knowledgeable of the different legal aspects involved. John let me know from the start that this could be a long process to resolve. I appreciated John's honesty and that John made no false promises. John negotiated settlements for me that allowed me to be made "whole". This was something I could never have been able to do on my own. I put my trust in John Miller and took all of his advice. I have also had the opportunity to get to know John and found him to be a very caring man, who wants to help people. I highly recommend him to anyone searching for an attorney to represent them. He was a Godsend to me. Barbara”
