Construction Defect & Accident Litigation

Ford, Walker, Haggerty & Behar specializes in defense of construction defect litigation. We represent the interests of many prominent developers, general contractors and subcontractors in connection with a broad spectrum of litigation involving commercial buildings and properties, together with residential housing and condominium associations.

Our expertise includes cases emanating from alleged design and architectural deficiencies to structural, mechanical and electrical issues. We have experience in handling both single and multi-party complex litigation involving earth movement, soil subsidence and water intrusion.

Our use of technology greatly increases our efficiency in handling these claims, especially in the representation of developers and general contractors. We have developed expertise in the formation and use of litigation case management orders, the establishment of protocols for visual and intrusive testing, and computerized matrix information for the evaluation of construction defects and most economic repair programs.

Our use of alternative dispute resolution and mediation has resulted in greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness in handling complex cases and multi-party litigation.
