Negligent Construction & Your Right to Compensation
Dyson & Levy represents people who have been injured as a result of construction defects and negligence. These cases involve residential and commercial construction defects that cause harm to people living and working in the buildings, as well as to visitors and passersby. These claims can be brought against developers, general contractors, subcontractors, and other individuals or companies involved in the construction of the defective or dangerous structure. We also help construction workers who have been injured due to safety violations and other preventable hazards at worksites.
Your Delray Beach construction defect attorney of Dyson & Levy can provide an honest assessment of your case and compassionate guidance if you or someone you love has been injured at a construction site or as a result of a construction defect. As an example, we recovered $1.6 million on behalf of a client who was injured in her newly built home. It takes meticulous preparation and tenacious legal representation in negotiating and litigating construction defect claims, but our team has the skill and resources to succeed.

Construction Site Hazards & Construction Defects
The accident rate in the construction industry is one of the highest in the United States, and construction workers are at a high risk of sustaining fatal injuries, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Developers and construction site supervisors have an obligation to comply with strict safety standards to avoid accidents, but this does not always occur.
Safety violations and violations of applicable construction and building codes can lead to:
- Equipment failures or accidents
- Falls from ladders or scaffolding
- Electrical injuries
- Workers being hit by moving equipment or falling material
- Structure failure
- Plumbing and electrical issues
- Ceiling or roof cave-in
At Dyson & Levy, our Delray construction accident lawyers know how to assess these kinds of cases to bring actions against construction companies, general and subcontractors, property owners, and others on behalf of the injured. We have extensive experience in this particular field and use our knowledge to develop winning strategies. We also take care to work closely with our clients to offer support during the difficult times following a serious accident. We are here for you.
