Portland Firm Protecting Business Clients in Flooding Claims
When flooding occurs on a business property, it can cause significant damage. Not only will the immediate operations of a business be stalled, but also there can be serious losses in terms of property value, cleanup and repair, inventory loss, injuries to employees, and other serious problems.
In addition to criminal laws in Oregon, Washington, and California, plaintiffs can seek compensation in civil courts. At Chenoweth Law Group, we are a premier corporate and real estate litigation firm serving Portland and the surrounding areas. We represent plaintiffs and defendants in drainage and flooding claims throughout Oregon, Washington, and California.
Damages Caused by Flooding and Drainage Problems
Flooding can result in:
- Sinking foundations and any other foundational damage to structures
- Leakage and mold issues inside structures
- Damage to property
- Creation of wetlands in surrounding areas
- Extensive cleanup and repair costs
As a business property owner, if the previous owner did not disclose improper drainage or a history of flooding on the property, or an adjacent landowner has caused flooding issues that have created damages to your property, you deserve to be compensated for your losses. Our lawyers will fight aggressively to protect your rights and obtain full compensation for the losses to your business.
If you are a landlord or a previous property owner who is being sued for undisclosed flooding and drainage issues, our attorneys at CLG will defend your rights and interests aggressively.
In most flooding and drainage disputes, it is advantageous to settle out of court if at all possible. This saves time, money, and other resources and often wields a more favorable result. If a case has to go to court, our lawyers will be ready, but we will exhaust every other reasonable option first.
