Construction is fraught with risk, and mistakes are common. In a litigious environment marked by shrinking industry margins, clients rely on VERTEX to determine potential causes for error and manage the fallout from claims.
VERTEX has worked on construction portfolios with values in the billions of dollars. As a result, we are uniquely positioned to help insurance clients effectively manage construction defect, general liability, professional liability, premise liability, product liability, property damage, and subrogation claims. We provide expert guidance on complex projects including large single-family communities, luxury residences, condominiums, shopping centers, infrastructure, and government and municipal properties.
VERTEX forensic services are comprehensive and include investigating the nature and extent of damage from substandard workmanship, design error and omissions, and material deficiencies. We also help clients assess and allocate liabilities, and evaluate plaintiff declarations to determine reasonable costs. VERTEX is unique in that we tender our cost of repair reports as formal bids to complete the work. This verifies the legitimacy of our estimates and promotes fair settlements.
