Rapid City Defective Construction Attorneys
What to Do If You Are Injured Due to a Construction Defect
All parties responsible for the design and construction of buildings, structures, and other similar spaces have a duty of care to the public. When this duty of care is breached, buildings and structures can be unsafe or unsound, leading to catastrophic consequences.
If you were injured as a result of a construction defect, it’s important that you discuss your legal rights and options with a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer. These are complex cases with many possible liable parties, from the designer of a building to the manufacturer of a specific product to a private contractor that completed the actual construction—and many others. An attorney will be able to help you determine who is liable for your injuries and can assist you in pursuing the fair recovery you are owed.
