On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Construction Defect on Mar 11, 2013.
We have all seen projects where a design principle is bent a little or a construction technique is altered slightly for the sake of speed or cost. Often times, the attitude is “no harm, no foul”. But consider the other side of the situation and ask yourself what happens when there is harm. A recent case in Southern California is worth noting in that regard.
