Denver, CO (PressExposure) May 10, 2011 -- Construction workers are the backbone of the industry and it's important that they are paid decently. In fact the State of Colorado has a statute that recognizes the fact that laborers, contractors, subcontractors and material men should be paid on time and there should exist, a remedy to allow people to claim for repayment. The means to seek remedial measures should also be over and above the right to sue on their contracts. A competent construction defect lawyer in Denver can help construction professionals seek payments for their claims.
Another problem that's common to the construction industry is the fact that owners of as property are often forced to pay twice for the same work just because of the mechanic's lien that was filed against the property. Statutes in Colorado state that people who've already paid the full contractual amount the lien cannot be enforced.
"There are several statues in the State of Colorado to help people avoid common mistakes with regards to the construction. For example, it's a known fact that a contractor is required to hold his client's money in trust for a payment, of its subcontractors, material men, and laborers. And if the money is not paid correctly, a person is entitled to claim damages that are three times (along with attorney fees) against the contractor," says the spokesperson for Schlueter, Mahoney & Ross, P.C, a firm of construction defect attorneys.
"A construction defect lawyer in Denver can help claim compensation for you, by either filing a case against the construction company or in some cases against an individual working for the construction company. The statute, also called 'The Colorado Trust Fund Statute', is so powerful that it's applicable also in bankruptcy," adds the spokesperson.
But it's important to find a competent construction defect attorney in Denver, who can help you with filing a case, even if the contractor or subcontractor has filed for bankruptcy to avoid the debt that he owes to you.
