Construction Defect

The Law Offices of Van Shaw have successfully represented over 500 residential homeowners in major construction and design defect cases.

We regularly sue homebuilders, contractors, insurers and home warranty companies for:

  • breach of contract and breach of warranty
  • negligence and fraud
  • violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices

Many of our firm’s cases also involve:

  • claims of improper insurance claims handling
  • wrongful denials of insurance coverage
  • failure to timely render necessary repairs
  • failure to remit payment to the insured
  • misrepresentations of coverage by insurance agents
  • violations of the Texas Insurance Code

Significant Expertise in the Courtroom

Home warranty companies frequently invoke the arbitration provision that is commonly included in most home warranties. As a result, we have developed significant expertise prosecuting construction defect cases in both the courtroom and through arbitration.

While settlements are often achieved on behalf of our clients, both informally and as a result of formal mediation, our legal team strives to maximize each client’s chances of recovery by preparing every case for trial.
