Many people want to help others when they can. Unfortunately, their efforts can sometimes be undermined by the actions of other parties. In some cases, construction litigation can result when a person or entity does not perform when it comes to completing a project in a satisfactory manner.
California readers may be interested in a lawsuit that was recently filed by the Make It Right Foundation, which is a nonprofit organization founded by Brad Pitt. Apparently, the suit was filed against the architect of several homes that were built in another state meant to help families who were negatively affected by Hurricane Katrina. However, the homes were apparently the result of defective construction, and as a result, many families have suffered issues.
The architect on the project took house designs and oversaw the construction of the homes. The lawsuit claims that the architect completed defective work, which included inadequate waterproofing. The foundation could face approximately $20 million in repairs due to the construction issues. Some of the complaints about the homes included mold, leaking roofs and rotting porches. Representatives for Brad Pitt did not provide comment for the report.
When issues with construction begin to show themselves, a considerable amount of damage may have already taken place. As this situation shows, many people can be negatively affected in ways that directly impact their lives. If individuals or companies in California have faced similar problems on personal or business projects, they may wish to find out more information on construction litigation and how they may be able to pursue compensation for damages sustained.
