Drainage issues

While water is one of the West’s most precious resources, it can often cause dramatic injury, loss of life, and property damage. Flooding, seepage, and landslide cases raise a host of factual and legal issues which transcend the typical lawsuit. Although there may be absolute liability for some dam failures, relieved only by “an act of God” defense, issues of duty, causation, and damages remain in other situations.

Consequently, with over a hundred years of conflicting case law addressing these matters, combined with convoluted factual issues, the use of an experienced inter-disciplinary team of lawyers, engineers, hydrologists and soil scientists is a practical necessity. Curtis, Justus, & Zahedi, LLC provides legal representation in cases dealing with this unique type of property damage.
