Defective Construction and Construction Accident Law

Construction site accidents occur at an alarming rate in the United States. The nature of heavy construction and construction sites is such that they are, by themselves hazardous, and construction workers routinely find themselves performing in life-threatening work conditions. As a result, serious work-related injuries at construction sites occur with an unfortunate frequency. Wuestling & James is routinely hired to defend construction companies in construction accident claims. We have a thorough knowledge of statutes, regulations, specifications, inspection requirements, and job safety programs related to construction site accidents and safety. Our experience with litigating these cases puts us in a position to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of a construction accident claim early in the case. Our trial experience puts us in a position to defend at trial those claims that should be defended through trial.

Wuestling & James has litigated, tried and/or arbitrated over 60 cases of defective construction in the last twelve years. Our construction accident attorneys have extensive experience in preparing and defending a wide variety of defective construction and accident claims. We represent our clients in all phases of the construction project and provide counseling in avoiding the legal pitfalls that permeate most projects. We helped resolve, without arbitration or suit, a claim of defective construction of the foundation wall for the $180 million Federal Courthouse in downtown St. Louis. Our firm is recognized by the St. Louis Roofing Contractors Association as the premier firm in St. Louis for claims of defective roofing. Since most construction accident cases settle, we often consult roofing companies and their insurers before arbitration or suit is filed.
