Construction disputes frequently arise over allegations of poor workmanship and contract issues. However, there are a number of other situations in which someone may decide to move forward with legal action against a construction company. For example, someone may accuse a contractor of abandoning a construction project. A property owner may believe that a project was not completed and that a contractor or construction company left before the job was done, prompting them to file a lawsuit. As with other types of construction disputes, it may be possible to handle these disagreements outside of court in some instances (but legal action is unavoidable in other cases).
Construction litigation arises for many reasons and these lawsuits can be especially difficult for construction companies that have recently completed a lengthy, costly project. In Los Angeles and all over the state of California, it is pivotal for construction company owners to handle these cases appropriately and be aware of just how much may be at stake. Setting aside the financial impact of disputes and legal action, a construction company's reputation may be on the line.
Residents in California who purchase homes should be able to trust that the building work was all completed appropriately and that they should not need to be concerned about problems with their structures. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. From single family homes to larger, multi-tenant buildings, faulty construction can cause serious issues that may take time to unravel and resolve.
