Soils Problems

Defects in the soil underneath a home can be a vexing, even terrifying problem. Cracking in interior walls, stucco, and the foundation often indicate that the underlying soil is defective. A builder who fails to properly compact or otherwise treat the soil before constructing the home may be liable for the damage that results – even years after the home was built. Further, soils engineers and subcontractors who worked on the home may also be liable.

At The Kristy Law Firm, we are experienced in fighting on behalf of people whose homes have suffered damage as the result of soils defects. Our relationships with expert geotechnical and civil engineers, architects, and contractors help us to successfully litigate soils defect cases. These cases can be technically complex and often require a substantial investment in the costs of experts and soils testing. When we take a soils-defect case, we advance all of these costs of litigation. Our clients repay these costs only at the resolution of the lawsuit, and only if we recover money for them.

We offer a free evaluation of your case. We represent homeowners on a contingency-fee basis, which means that our clients owe us no attorney fees unless and until we recover money for them. If you believe your home was built on defective soil, call us today for a free evaluation of your case.
