Avoiding and reacting to construction disputes

| Feb 17, 2017 | Construction Law |

Your overall goal is to avoid construction disputes, and there are many steps you can take to minimize the risk. One of the most important things to do, for example, is to be very careful with the drafting of contracts, both to ensure that they adhere to the local laws and to make sure that both sides are really happy with the terms.

You don’t want to rush these things, which can lead to mistakes or oversights. These, in turn, can lead to disputes that cost time and money, all which bogging down the project.

However, there is always the chance that a dispute will arise, despite your best efforts. When it does, you need to know how to react and what options you have. These options could include things like:

— Redrafting a new contract to address the problem.

— Working on dispute mediation so that a solution can be found without going to court.

— Agreeing up a settlement so that the dispute can officially be resolved.

— Going to court to have the legal system help sort out the dispute and protect your rights.

Every case is different, and there are a huge variety of potential claims in the construction industry. Each of these unique cases must be considered individually to determine what the best course of action may be.

Do you want to learn more about what you can do up front to avoid a costly dispute, or do you want to know how to proceed with a dispute already in progress? Either way, our website can answer many of your pressing questions.
