In West Virginia, contract work under $5,000 may be litigated in small claims or magistrate court. Although this is often a cost-effective way for certain clients to address the matter, many find it can be a lengthier process than they expect. In addition, statutes of limitation restrict the amount of time you have to sue a contractor. Our attorney can advise you the best way of suing a contractor for defects, property damage, or breach of contract. Whether you arranged for a contractor’s services as an individual or business, you have the right to sue for any flaws or failures in performance.
