Construction Litigation Matters We Handle in South Carolina

Any phase of a construction project can give rise to a dispute between stakeholders, and these conflicts need skilled handling to seek a just resolution. At Thurmond Kirchner & Timbes, P.A., we are capable of taking on cases of all shapes and sizes. Our team stays current on changes in commercial and residential construction laws, and we are well-versed negotiators and litigators.

Our South Carolina construction lawyers handle a range of issues, including, but not limited to:

  • CONSTRUCTION DEFECT CLAIMS: If a project fails to conform to applicable building codes, standards or construction requirements, the wronged party may hold another responsible for damages. Our residential and commercial construction lawyers can help pursue a claim for construction defects.

  • WATER INTRUSION: Claims may arise when an owner asserts that design errors, defective materials, or inferior construction methods allowed water to penetrate and damage building components.

  • SURETY CLAIMS/PAYMENT AND PERFORMANCE BONDS: An owner may pursue legal action when they claim that the contractor has not fulfilled their obligations for the project.

  • INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS: Coverage for property damage or third-party injury plays a vital role in the resolution of most construction disputes. Our South Carolina coverage lawyers can help ensure insurance companies adhere to the terms and conditions of their respective policies.

  • WARRANTY CLAIMS: Owners may seek legal remedies for work that failed prematurely as a result of poor workmanship.

  • DEFECTIVE BUILDING PRODUCTS AND MATERIALS: The use of substandard or defective materials for buildings can lead to property damage or personal injury. Our construction defect team represents commercial and residential owners asserting that the construction products and materials were deficient.

  • BREACH OF CONTRACT CLAIMS: These legal matters can arise when one party claims that another violated contractual terms and conditions. At Thurmond Kirchner & Timbes, P.A., we can effectively handle these often complicated issues.

  • DELAY CLAIMS: These claims are based on the assertion that the project is not on track because of the at-fault party’s actions or inactions.

  • MECHANIC'S LIENS: If a contractor or subcontractor has not received payment from a client, they may pursue a claim against the property to seek compensation to which they are entitled.

  • PAYMENT DISPUTES: Conflicts can arise when one party believes that they have not received the required payment or that financial obligations have already been fulfilled.

  • DEFECTIVE DESIGN CLAIMS: Deficiencies in the design or administration of the construction project could lead to premature failures or structural inadequacies that result in property damage or personal injury.

  • EIFS, MDF TRIM, AND OTHER SYNTHETIC BUILDING MATERIALS: Use of synthetic materials that weren’t properly evaluated, tested, sealed, or installed have led to property damage.

Our construction attorneys are equipped with the legal background and knowledge necessary to fully investigate each set of circumstances, determine whether there is a legitimate claim, assess issues concerning statutes of limitations and statutes of repose, evaluate potential insurance coverage, and resolve the action as efficiently as possible. Contact a member of our team to discuss your legal options for resolving your construction dispute.
