Every day, hundreds or maybe even thousands of homeowners are wronged by unscrupulous contractors. We used the term "wronged" to be polite, but homeowners really feel differently. In many cases, the normal course of their lives have been altered or ruined because of a contractor's, negligence, incompetence or just plain greed.
When we refer to contractors, we include any type of service provider that designs, builds or maintains any part of your home. All the way from all the necessary steps to build a home from the ground up, to lawn care, electrical repairs or even appliance repair.
When you contract a licensed professional to do a job, you expect them to do their job to the best of their ability and to fully comply with local, and national guidelines for the type of service provided. Unfortunately it is not always the case.
Most services provided include some type of warranty or coverage period to correct any malfunction. However, what happens if something goes wrong after the warranty period, or is not covered in the warranty?
In many cases, you still have rights! Depending on the scope of the damage the contractor can be liable even after the warranty periods have expired.
If a contractor has wronged you and created a mess, and they do not want to reasonably resolve the situation in a timely manner, you may need to take legal action. Hiring an experienced attorney in business to consumer affairs is the key to getting the result you expect and deserve.
It is important that the victims of contractor negligence have the best available resources to them to make sure that they are represented by an experienced attorney that can represent them to receive the maximum amount of compensation possible for the damages created by the contractor. At The Leon Law Firm, our job is to get to the bottom of the facts and hold those responsible for the damages accountable for their wrongdoings. Even if that means going to all the way to trial.
