This year I became a member in a class action lawsuit involving defective construction. Attorney Floyd was one of the Attorneys that helped me prepare for my deposition. He provided an overview of the lawsuit, making sure I knew what the action against the contractor was and how to express my concerns about the problems with my home.
During the Deposition Attorney Floyd sat right by my side as I answered questions from the Defendant’s Attorney. It would have been an intimidating experience if not for the guidance from Attorney Floyd. I truly appreciated his direction and expertise.
Prior to the trial, Attorney Floyd described how he expected the trial to proceed. When called as a witness, I was able to effectively express my concerns and their impact on my family.
We have received a significant sum of money, in partial payment, to make repairs on our home; I feel confident we will ultimately receive additional monies which will allow us to make significant repairs to our home.
“Myself and other homeowners were represented by Mr. Floyd. The thing I appreciated most was how Mr. Floyd would take the time to answer any and all of my questions. He not only answered them, but then took the time to expound on his answers to make sure that I understood exactly what was going on. I really appreciated that he never acted as though I was a bother. I would highly recommend Mr. Floyd to anyone.”
“Attorney Floyd provided me with excellent legal services. His expertise and genuine dedication were apparent as he thoroughly pursed my claim. Throughout the process, Lee listened, advocated and kept me informed.”
“I worked extensively with Mr. Floyd in my lawsuit. He vigorously and thoroughly pursued our claims, which allowed us to recover funds to assist with fixing the damages to our home. He also explained things in a way that allowed us to easily follow and understand the process of the litigation.”
A builder or insurer typically will not fully take care of your interests or take the steps necessary to compensate you fully for your loss. It is in the builder’s or insurer’s best interest to do the bare minimum to resolve your complaint and avoid fully compensating you for your damages rather than to fully and fairly resolve your claim.
It will not cost you anything out of pocket. Any fees and expenses for the Floyd Law Firm come out of any recovery. If there is no recovery, then it will cost you nothing.
You should contact an attorney as soon as you feel that your rights are being disregarded or you are not being taken seriously. It is important to contact an attorney promptly as there are laws that bar the filing of a lawsuit after a certain amount of time has passed since a person knew or should have known they may have a claim.
When you think your rights are not being protected or that you are not being dealt with fairly.
In the context of construction defects, homeowners have more rights than the builder or an insurer may acknowledge, such as the fact that a one-year warranty is not the only warranty a homeowner has a right to under South Carolina law. Also, Construction defects and the resulting problems are often difficult if not impossible for homeowners to see until after extensive damage has already occurred, which often takes years. There are often additional problems that may not yet be noticeable without a thorough inspection by a professional engineer.
