Houston Construction Litigation Attorneys Fight for You
Legal problems are inevitable in the construction industry. The industry is dangerous by nature, and sometimes safety legalities rear their heads. There are also a variety of groups that must see eye to eye in order to bring a project to fruition, and sometimes problems arise between these parties.
Some of the most common construction industry law claims include the following:
- Payment issues
- Excessive work scope changes
- Breach of contract
- Terminations for convenience
- Workplace injuries or fatalities
- Bonding problems
- Stop work orders
- Design deficiencies
When Litigation is Needed
The most common means of resolving a construction dispute are mediation, arbitration, and litigation. The first two, meditation and arbitration, are forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
Litigation is typically the last resort option; however, some disputes are so adversarial, they simply must be resolved through the litigation process.
What Happens Next?
Litigation is more than just the trial. In fact, if a settlement can be reached there won’t be a trial at all.
A typical litigation process unfolds in the following phases:
- Initial investigation
- Drafting documents
- Trial or settlement
Your Houston construction litigation attorney will provide counsel and aggressive representation throughout every phase of litigation.
