Pursuing Claims Against Negligent Subcontractors
Property owners are entitled to legal recourse when subcontractors fail in their duties to complete all projects with reasonable care and skill. If you have had to pay for repairs caused by a negligent subcontractor, you may be able to pursue financial compensation for those costs from either the general contractor or subcontractor.
Negligence of General Contractors and Subcontractors
Depending on the exact circumstances of your damages, either the general contractor or the subcontractor may be held liable for your associated economic-loss. Some of the reasons why contractors may be held financially accountable for damages include the following:
- Safety violations
- Negligent hiring
- Negligent instructions
- Defective work
- Breached duty of care
All of this information represents complex legal avenues for homeowners who have been wronged by contractors or subcontractors; however, it can be incredibly difficult to pursue these claims alone. An experienced Dallas real estate attorney can be an invaluable asset when seeking compensation for damages related to contracted work on your home or commercial property.
