McGowan & Associates represented a South Shore client who had her seafront home elevated onto pilings in accordance with a FEMA grant program. Our client came to discover over a period of time that cracks were appearing. She involved a structural engineer who determined that there were geotechnical issues and subsurface conditions leading to settlement.
We were engaged to assist our client in the prosecution of claims against the contractors involved in the project and the engineer who oversaw the work. We were able to establish that the structure was indeed settling and were able to obtain a substantial pre-suit settlement on behalf of our client that allowed her to fund remedial work to shore the structure and allow her to remain in her home.
