Experienced Representation In Construction Defect Disputes

Construction defects can occur in a variety of ways. If a contractor failed to follow standard construction procedures, structural damage can result such as cracks in the foundation or roof defects. Additionally, bad plans or improper design can create serious structural flaws. Factors outside of a worker's control may also cause damage, such as extreme weather, natural settling and unpredictable soil patterns.

As a Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch and Sarasota attorney for construction defects, Dana J. Watts has decades of experience investigating these claims and determining who or what is at fault for the defect. He also has a deep understanding of the state and federal laws regulating the construction industry. Because he represents both plaintiffs and defendants in construction defect cases, he has a unique perspective into what the other party is thinking as well as their strengths and weaknesses. This allows him to build a strong case for his clients, no matter what side of the dispute they are on. Dana Watts will not hesitate to take your case to court to put you in the best position for a positive outcome.

Construction defects often lead to breach of contract and disputes over payment. Florida's lien law allows contractors and subcontractors to place construction liens on property when they have not been paid. Dana Watts will help you understand the complexities of these laws and how they apply in your case.
