Construction litigation is an unfortunate reality in the ever-evolving landscape of construction projects. From contract breaches to design flaws, these disputes can escalate and become costly and time-consuming. Below are some common types of lawsuits that arise in the context of construction litigation.

Common Types of Construction Litigation

Contract Disputes

Contracts serve as the cornerstone of any construction project, defining the rights, responsibilities, and obligations of all parties involved. However, disagreements over contract terms, scope changes, payment disputes, delays, and breaches can lead to construction litigation. Our firm assists clients in navigating contract disputes, ensuring that their rights are protected and contractual obligations are enforced.

Construction Litigation Defect Claims

Construction defects can manifest in various forms, ranging from structural issues to design flaws and material deficiencies. These defects can compromise the integrity, safety, and functionality of a structure, resulting in costly repairs and potential safety hazards. Our attorneys can evaluate construction defect claims, conduct thorough investigations, and advocate for fair compensation on behalf of property owners, contractors, and other affected parties.

Delay and Disruption Claims

Delays and disruptions are prevalent in the construction industry, arising from factors such as weather conditions, material shortages, cost increases, labor disputes, design changes, and unforeseen site conditions. When projects fall behind schedule or encounter disruptions, parties may seek damages for lost productivity, extended overhead costs, and other related expenses. Our firm assists clients in assessing delay and disruption claims, identifying liability, and pursuing remedies to mitigate financial losses.

Construction Litigation Payment Disputes

Payment disputes are a common source of construction litigation, involving issues such as non-payment, underpayment, invoicing discrepancies, and mechanics’ lien claims. Owners, general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and other stakeholders often find themselves embroiled in disputes over payment for services rendered or materials supplied. Our attorneys provide comprehensive legal guidance to resolve payment disputes efficiently, safeguarding the financial interests of our clients.

Professional Negligence Claims

Architects, engineers, and other design professionals play a critical role in the construction process, providing expertise in planning, design, and project management. However, errors, omissions, and professional negligence can lead to costly construction defects and project delays. Our firm represents clients in professional negligence claims.
