Foundation Defects

Construction defects are not limited to buildings or structures. Some of the most significant construction claims relate to soil or foundation movement and landslides. When a builder constructs a residence or structure, the builder must first properly construct the building pad. The builder must prepare the building site to receive the residence or structure without potentially damaging soil movement. A foundation must be properly designed and constructed to resist soil movement. Retaining walls are a typical example of one construction method designed to contain soil movement. The inadequacy of the foundation to resist or accommodate soil movement or the failure of a retaining wall can constitute a construction defect. Ponding of water under a residential or commercial structure or adjacent to it can also cause soil movement and/or foundation movement.

Our firm has successfully litigated a wide variety of soils and foundation movement cases. Please contact the law offices of Abbey, Weitzenberg, Warren & Emery for a free initial consultation.
