    Can I sue a subcontractor

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Minnesota. Last year I hired a contractor to replace my windows. Subsequently he said he could also do my driveway as well so I said okay seeing as how I could finance everything together. Long story short, the driveway is a piece of crap, cracking, scaling, and pop-outs everywhere and the thickness is less than four inches. The subcontractor he used just did a horrible job. So I contacted the original contractor about the problem seeing as I was told I had a 2 year warranty, he/they informed me they are out of business. He did give me the subs info, upon contacting him I was told it wasn't his problem and that he only warrantied his work for a year. I'm upset to say the least. I paid 14g's for a piece of crap driveway. Can I sue the sub? What recourse do I have? Any advice would be fantastic. Thanks in advance.

    Sue all entities involved. The contractor's company, the contractor individually, the subcontractor's company and the subcontractor individually.

    Then you've got all your bases covered.
