When Loss Of Support And Subsidence Raises Legal Issues

When construction projects cause damage to adjacent or nearby properties, those property owners may have recourse through civil litigation. Engineers and contractors responsible for designing and building underground and above-ground structures such as pipes, wells, pillars and foundations are expected to exercise due diligence as they survey, plan, excavate, remove earth and build.

What Caused The Damage?

Did a building project next door to your property end up damaging your property, with subterranean changes causing your property to subside? Perhaps mainline drains were damaged or underground supports for your buildings were cracked. Premature removal of excavation support may have caused ground subsidence and subsequent damage to your building's foundation.

You may have lost a retaining wall, parking surfaces or any natural or constructed part of your property because of work by a company in the process of development or demolition in close proximity to your structure.

Whatever the deficiencies of land support before or during construction near your property, and whatever losses you incurred, our California land use litigation lawyers may be able to help you discover the causes and bring damage claims against responsible parties.
