Construction projects involve a complex web of contracts between multiple parties, numerous government regulations, and huge sums of money. Even when all involved parties make honest efforts to live up to their end of the bargain, problems can arise from weather, job site accidents, supply disruptions, or other unexpected complications. When all stops going according to plan, do you know what will happen?
Often, the result of problems in an ongoing job is a work stoppage while the parties dispute who should bear financial responsibility. In the end, this will likely be more expensive to all of those involved. While we are prepared to vigorously fight for you in a construction law claim and believe that you do have the right to fully protect your rights, we believe that prevention is almost always better than cure.
The starting point to a successful construction project is airtight contracts that specifically lay out when payments will be earned and made, what happens in the case of complications such as weather or cost increases, and how subcontractors will be handled. To best protect yourself, contact us during the planning stages of your project or when you first decide to bid on a project.
