Re: Improper Window Installation is the norm
You don't see many suits because they are too expensive to pursue, builders collapse for two reasons, 1) It's quicker to just cave in and a lot of money is at stake with construction loans, owners' demands etc. And 2) Litigation takes years and costs a fortune, with appeals any good law firm can keep cases in the courts for 10 years. I heard a story about copyright infringement today, if someone accuses you of copyright infringement they have to make a take down demand, if you really think you are right the costs of pursuing it average $400,000 to $500,000, it's seldom worth it unless your financial resources greatly outweigh your competitions'.
