Litigation is costly. Even if you prevail, legal fees, trial costs,
staff time and potentially damaging publicity can hurt your bottom line.
Fortunately, many of the important factors that affect your chances of
being sued are under your control.
Attend NRMCA’s new Concrete Construction Liability Seminar, and you’ll
learn how to make your contract your first defense against unwarranted
quality claims. You will gain insight on how judges and juries decide
whether companies have met the required “standard of care” in concrete
quality and performance disputes. In addition, the workshop will include
a primer on quality control procedures that can help keep legal claims
against your company to a minimum.
