Statutes Of Limitations In Construction Law

Timing is one of the most important factors in most construction defect cases. For example, the statute of limitations on defect claims in Maryland and Washington, D.C., is three years from the date the defect was discovered, or reasonably should have been discovered. In Virginia, the limit is five years for property damage claims. A claim made after the statute has lapsed cannot survive in court.

The laws surrounding this area of civil litigation are complex. The only way for a construction, contracting, or real estate business to safeguard their rights, and their reputation is to retain experienced legal counsel. MacDonald Law Group, LLC, provides sound advice and decades of trial experience. Whether the case ends in settlement or trial, the firm will work closely with its client every step of the way.
