How to Sue Builder for Defects in Construction?

Before you actually face a construction injury lawyer, you need to know a couple of things that may endanger your wellbeing while staying at a home built by an erring builder. Usually, each country’s licensing board oversees the licensing of its contractors and protects the general public.

There are many unlicensed contractors that operate freely without restrictions. Although the law is strict with regards to fraudsters and illegal contractors, there are several kinds of litigation that can be brought against work improvements that have not been carried out by these contractors in exchange of a hefty price. As a homeowner, you can litigate against a building contractor if there is a:

  • delay in delivery of the service,
  • use of bad materials in the building,
  • faulty building practices and defective construction.

In many other cases, the home owner may also file litigation against wrong charges and lack of legal verification or checks on the project.

  • You can take action as a home owner once the home construction contract is breached.
  • You can also file a breach of trust once the property is handed over to the homeowner.
  • You can also file for strict liability if there is a defective construction and the law will thereby take the right course of action regardless of the reasons the contractor cites in defence.

In case you get injured because of a defective construction, you can sue for damages in a court of law. The legal responsibility for defects in construction is quite high.

Most defects are complicated in home building and can range from minor flaws to major issues not visible to the naked eye at the first instance. There are several construction workers and contractors that break the building regulations and codes. You must therefore hire a good construction lawyer to fight these irregularities and seek compensation for the troubles! For further information on how to sue a builder for defects in construction that led to personal injury, please contact Opara Law PC (construction accident injury lawyer in Toronto) by email at or by phone at 416-840-5572.
