Don't allow repair costs to eat away at profits

Register now for this 75-minute audio session in which our expert speaker, Steven C. Bennett, will explore the nature of construction defects claims, common defenses to such claims, and means to mitigate the risks of these claims—including insurance

Construction defects claims introduce cost, delay, and uncertainty into a project—and complications may linger for years. When such claims land you in court, further hurdles arise, including producing sufficient evidence of contractor error or alternative theories for the defects. Failure to make a strong argument could mean paying repair bills that far exceed the original project price tag. Your best bet is to prevent construction defects claims where possible—and prepare a solid case where such claims are unavoidable.

In this program, you will learn how to:

  • Identify common defects claims
  • Recognize potential defenses and how to prepare them
  • Address documentation and recordkeeping issues
  • Prepare for change orders and inspections
  • Identify essential quality-control techniques

This presentation is appropriate for attorneys, project owners, construction contractors, design professionals, risk managers, and insurance professionals.

After attending this audio event, you will have a "big picture" understanding of litigation strategies for construction defects claims. Plus, you will better understand potential construction defects liability, the steps to take when preparing a construction defects claim, and best practices for mitigating such claims.
