Our Termite Litigation Practice
We aggressively protect the rights of homeowners who have suffered property damage as a result of an improper or incorrect disclosure at the time of purchase, as well as people who have suffered losses because of negligent or wrongful acts by termite companies. You may be entitled to damages to cover not only property damage, but the costs of new construction, mental anguish, and punitive damages, if there was willful fraud or recklessness.
When you close on the purchase of a house, you should receive a wood infestation report, which shows any existing damage due to termites. Many of the claims we handle result from a failure to properly inspect the premises at the time of sale. We also represent homeowners against termite companies in actions involving false and misleading wood infestation reports at the time of closing, failure to properly treat an infested home, and a failure to properly treat the soil before construction.
If you have suffered damage due to termite infestation, we will help you get a full inspection of your home, so that we can determine what needs to be fixed and how much it will cost. We will contact the termite company to demand payment, or file suit against the seller and/or termite company, if necessary. If the termite company refuses to pay, we are more than capable of presenting your case to a jury, so that the jury may award proper damages.
