    Re: Ignoring Building Defects

    Posted by Homey on 6/12/06

    What is sad is that people think it's so easy to sue someone. Only
    people who have never had a real legal problem and done anything
    about it still live under that delusion. I'm not talking about
    ambulance chasers who make a living getting people settlements from
    insurance co's for injuries in car accidents, etc, but civil cases
    involving property and other non-personal injury issues. Most state
    laws just don't allow the kind of awards people think they are
    entitled to. Anyone who's had to go after a bad home builder finds
    that out real quick.
