Faulty Framer

Faulty Framer

A condo association sued the developer and general contractor of the development for water intrusion and other construction defects. Attorney Bruce Gilbert represented the developer in the case. All parties [including the general contractor and multiple subcontractors] settled except the subcontractor who framed 10 of the 15 buildings. At trial, Bruce Gilbert argued that the framing subcontractor was negligent during the installation of both the windows and sliding glass doors, and that the framing subcontractor failed to pay its fair share of the settlement. He used a visual presentation of photos and detailed diagrams to show the jury the construction defects. Bruce won every claim and the jury awarded Bruce’s client over $147,500 in damages and will likely be entitled to some attorney fee recovery. The Jury verdict was more than three and 1/2 times the pre-trial offer made by the subcontractor.
