Georgia Negligent Construction Attorney: Multiple Skills – A Winning Combination
Negligent construction is an action taken against a contractual party for damages done to property or when they fail to perform their duties. For instance, a contractor may file a lawsuit against a subcontractor for faulty workmanship or claim against a concrete company that used substandard materials, which resulted in foundation failure.

Skilled Georgia Business Lawyer Negotiates Agreements, Litigates When Necessary To Prevent Deadline Delays
Don’t let a construction lawsuit delay the opening of your Georgia business or cancel an important contract. Oftentimes, a skilled Georgia business lawyer can negotiate an agreement that prevents a deadline disruption. There are times, however, when it is necessary to argue the matter before a judge and that is when it is important to carefully select your attorney.
A Georgia negligent construction lawyer at Wilbanks Law Firm vigorously challenges the other side’s “experts” to ensure the opposition does not prevail by using what is commonly referred to as “junk science” as evidence. We also look closely at the actions of the other side, looking for evidence of wrongdoing on their part. This is because Georgia is a “modified comparative negligence” state, meaning that if the plaintiff is also negligent and that negligence is equal to or greater than the defendant’s wrongdoing, the plaintiff cannot prevail. In other words, if both sides have erred, the plaintiff won’t win. Other defenses may include statute of limitations/statute of repose, “acceptance doctrine” (work that is accepted by owner/builder), and errors and omissions, among others.
