Construction Defect Financial Claim Management

What is construction defect financial litigation? In a construction defect lawsuit, multiple parties owe a portion of all fees and costs. With various parties involved in such a lawsuit, most carriers/trades are clueless as to what they have paid and owe, making the whole process extremely confusing and time-consuming. That’s where JDi’s VCC comes in.

While you’re disputing, JDi experts handle all payments to vendors, experts, and legal and defense costs at no extra cost to the law firm. VCC allows our clients time to concentrate solely on the case without financial distractions.

In our informative video Construction Defect 101, JDi’s Director of VCC, Christine Erwin, gives valuable insight into preparing for HB301 and best practices for the complex financial litigation process.

Certificate of Insurance (COI) Autonomous Tracking

If your business uses multiple contractors, tracking certificates of insurance (COIs) is a priority! Unfortunately, 75% of US businesses are underinsured, and 40% of small business owners have no insurance coverage. Therefore, some third parties you use might not have the appropriate coverage. Due diligence is critical to ensure every working contractor has updated, compliant insurance. If not, you may be responsible for costly contractor mistakes and accidents.
