How to recover damages

Your carpenter is an independent contractor. He is liable to compensate each and every damages caused due to his fault. Therefore, you can initiate proper legal proceeding against him. You can file a case before the consumer forum to make good the loss. First you should prepare a report towards real loss you incurred due to his faulty work.

It does not matter that he had employed two distinct carpenter to conduct your work because they were working under his direction and control. Hence, they shall be treated as their agent and he is liable for the loss caused by them. Send him a legal notice before initiating court proceeding.

You can also file a civil suit for damages but it’ll consume lot of time and civil suit proceeding is very complex. Thus, you should prefer to lodge a complaint before the consumer forum. It has a summary proceeding and competent to provide complete justice in your case.
