    Default Builder Liability and Duty of Possessor of Land

    I'm conducting research on builders/contractors liability where a door was improperly made (design defect) and it caused our client to fall down the stairs. My question is this: what possible claims can be brought against the builder, and is there a statute on point? I thought about three claims so far: 1. Professional Builder Malpractice , 2. Negligence and 3. a Third Party Beneficiary claim. What do you think?

    Default Defective Door

    It's hard to give any specific theories without knowing the essential facts. You may want to look at Prebenda v Tartaglia, 245 Mich App 168; 627 NW2d 610 (2001) and LaFuente v Cherry Hill Lanes, North, No. 249551 (Dec 21, 2004).
