What is Construction Law?

Our experienced construction accident lawyers handle a wide array of construction-related claims. Just about all construction endeavors involve permitting, financial transactions, complex contracts and agreements, negotiations, timelines/deadlines, labor costs, employment issues, and so much more. Whether it is residential or commercial construction, these projects involve many moving parts and many opportunities for disagreement. 

If you are a homeowner, builder, developer, or construction worker dealing with a serious dispute, our attorneys can help. Below, we look at some of the most common issues that arise, although your situation may be different.

Claims commonly pursued by homeowners:

  • Construction defects
  • Faulty or defective workmanship
  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of warranty
  • Contractor negligence
  • Subcontractor negligence

Construction worker claims may include:

  • Personal injury
  • Breach of employment contract
  • Withheld wages
  • Harassment
  • Discrimination

Builder and developer claims may involve:

  • Non-payment
  • Withheld payments
  • Subcontractor breach of contract
  • Subcontractor defective workmanship
  • Defective products
  • Personal injury

It’s easy for construction disputes to become contentious, no matter which parties are involved. Arguments over contracts, the work done, wages, or injuries can quickly escalate. Instead of attempting to resolve the matter on your own, you should seriously consider hiring an attorney to handle the matter for you. Our attorneys know how to review contracts and to determine if any laws were broken. We can determine if parties failed to act in good faith, or if they failed to deliver on some portion of the agreement. We will work to resolve the matter with a cool and level head, but we will tirelessly pursue what is best for you.

In any construction dispute, it’s usually a good idea to get on top of things promptly. Sometimes builders and developers will reach out to lawyers early on, when they are first sensing the beginnings of a bigger dispute, so that they can proceed in a way that is in their best interest.
