Stucco defects have characterized modern housing that is overseen by negligent contractors. Stucco that is installed defectively can cause severe damages or injury to the owner of the building and the occupants therein. It is worth nothing that stucco defects can prevail for years without discovery but the repercussions can be disastrous, and therefore you need to be mindful in hiring professional contractors that are thorough and vigilant enough to prevent such defects. Stucco installation should be done with utmost efficacy in order to avoid unnecessary expenses and prolonged legal claims.
However, if you are a victim of such professional negligence, it is necessary to hire attorneys that will bring forth a stucco lawsuit which leads to the recovery of damages suffered.These attorneys offer different services including provision of legal notices to builders that are responsible for the defects. The lawyers can also oversee the discovery and inspections that will lay the foundation for your case. Stucco attorneys can institute recovery proceedings through civil suits or alternative dispute resolution mechanisms.
Alternative dispute resolution mechanisms have been lauded as the preferred methods for recovering substantive damages from a guilty contractor. The advantages of using ADR mechanisms are laid down as follows;
ADR mechanisms are largely acclaimed for their flexibility in terms of rules and procedure. Civil suits are encumbered by technicalities and procedures that will cumulatively hamper dispute resolution and settlement. However, ADR is very flexible because parties have the liberty to choose the applicable rules. For example, the parties may opt to apply domestic or foreign laws depending on those that will expedite settlement.
Parties to a stucco suit in an arbitration or mediation suit have the liberty to pick a nonpartisan individual to hear and determine the matter. Also, the arbitrators in such cases ought not to be advocates, but it is preferred that you settle on a professional that is well conversant of the dynamics of your issues. The independent mediator/arbitrator will reach a settlement that is fair and unbiased to the parties therein.
Due to the flexibility of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms parties are able to litigate timely and expeditiously. In arbitration, parties present their documents and evidence to the arbitrator who will thereafter give his impartial verdict based on his interpretation. Due to the singularity of the matter, the arbitrator is able to reach a decision promptly without unnecessary delays.
