In recent years, we have unfortunately seen a rise in the number of construction defect cases due to the growing demand for housing in Oklahoma. With this demand comes a higher likelihood of construction companies and contractors cutting corners during the construction process.
Whether in a home, condominium, or business property, contractors and design professionals are being held responsible for their work.
