Hardie board lawsuits are non-cumulative litigation filings in which plaintiffs have the right to file lawsuits that assert any claim related to the defendant’s defects and failures. The plaintiffs are granted a right to submit written complaints, and an appeal, to the circuit court, for a preliminary injunction as well as damages. If the plaintiffs are not successful, they are only entitled to attorney fees and costs. Attorneys who are handling these types of cases are experienced in representing and negotiating with defendants.
There are many causes for a hard board lawsuit. One of them is when the board’s certified engineers did not adhere to industry standards. The board has the authority to request that the engineer submit a report and inspection, explaining why the standards were not met. When the board finds serious defects, they issue a public announcement calling for mandatory side-by-side testing between all companies manufacturing cement, including the defendant. Any company manufacturing concrete that fails to comply with these standards is required by law to submit the names of their individual employees who were involved in the failure.
The other cause of a hard board finding is when the manufacturer of the cement fails to maintain quality control. This can also include a failure to comply with local, state, and federal regulations. A hardie board is typically appointed by the county sheriff. Because of their tremendous strength, boards often have a tremendous amount of clout. County sheriffs are usually very close to the cement manufacturers.
If you find that you have a case against a cement manufacturer, you may want to consult with a lawyer. It is a very complex matter. The hard board generally makes its decisions based on what they think is fair, even if it means ignoring what the majority of other board members believe is appropriate. A lawyer will help you to get this message across to the board and get the case taken care of legally. Most importantly, your lawyer will know which issues to pursue.
If you are trying to get compensation for injuries you suffered from a defective hard board or improperly installed cement, you may also want to consider a slip-and-fall case. In slip-and-fall cases, the person responsible for maintaining a public property such as an apartment building, shopping center, or hotel room has a very important role to play. If you have been injured because of the board’s negligence in providing inadequate safety measures, you may be entitled to financial compensation. For more information on this matter, contact an attorney. He or she will be able to advise you on your best route to obtaining justice.
As stated above, there is a great deal of risk for people who fall due to defective hardie board lawsuits. However, there are also considerable rewards. There are many different cases being pursued around the country every year regarding slip-and-fall accidents. If you are one of the many victims seeking damages for your injuries, contact a personal injury lawyer today. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries.
