Common Construction Law Cases And Disputes

In the world of construction projects, each project can have many moving parts. When there are many moving parts, there is also a potential for conflicts and disputes to arise throughout various stages of the process. Some of these conflicts can include:

  • Contract negotiations: When the terms of a contract are negotiated, there is the potential for the parties to have disputes and disagreements.
  • Breach of contract: Once the parties have an enforceable contract, if either party breaches the terms of that contract, disputes can arise about how to proceed.
  • Timeline disputes: The parties can disagree about what needs to happen when in a construction project timeline. Project delays can have a ripple effect on availability and rising costs.
  • Citations and fines: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is an administrative agency that can levy fines for noncompliance with safety provisions. Conflicts and disagreements can arise over the issuance of these fines.
  • Contractor termination: A contractor has a central role in any construction project. If disagreements arise with a contractor or a contractor has to be terminated, the entire project can be jeopardized, suffer delays and extra costs.
  • Issues with surety bonds: A surety bond is a financial guarantee that protects owners in the event a contractor fails to perform their duties. Negotiating, renewal and filing a claim against a surety bond can all be potential sources of conflicts.
  • Mechanic’s liens: A mechanic’s lien protects a contractor, subcontractor, laborer, or supplier’s right to get paid for work and materials on a project. In the event the owner fails to pay for the work performed, a mechanic’s lien gives its holder an ownership interest in the property in the amount they are owed.
  • Construction defects: Once work on a project is completed, disagreements can arise over how the work was completed and its quality.

At Antonopoulos Legal Group, our experienced construction law attorneys are adept at handling the potential conflicts that can arise with a construction project. From compliance issues to payment matters, our attorneys will protect you or your company’s rights and interests.
