One thing we can say with absolute certainty from our professional perspective as attorneys with on-point and proven practice experience in the realm of construction law is that legal disputes in this singular area will always occur, across a wide universe of concerns.
Construction companies and the electricians, plumbers, and contractors employed by them have a big responsibility. They are the people that are called when someone would like a custom house built from scratch. There are many details involved in building a house and meticulous attention is required to make sure that everything goes as planned.
While most people would like to assume that every aspect of a building's construction is executed perfectly, this isn't always the case. For example, a roof located in Breckenridge recently collapsed. Of course, this is a scary situation because there is the potential for people to develop injuries as a result of any roof collapse.
It would certainly be optimal for every construction project -- both residential and commercial -- to yield an ideal outcome for all participants in Colorado or wherever else it is undertaken.
For subcontractors working in the Centennial State, a ruling by the Colorado State Court of Appeals may have made some legal aspects of construction trades considerably more complicated. Colorado laws establish two different time limits for filing lawsuits against subcontractors for deficient work: The statute of limitations and the statute of repose. A new legal interpretation of the second can affect how you do business going forward.
