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).
There are a number of reasons why a contractor may have to "abandon" a project. For example, a contractor may not be able to start work on a project according to the timeframe that was initially agreed upon, prompting a property owner to accuse the contractor of abandoning the project. Or, perhaps a construction company is no longer able to work on a particular project temporarily or indefinitely, for whatever reason, which could also give rise to accusations of abandonment.
It is pivotal to handle these cases correctly and there may be much at stake, not only from a financial point of view but in terms of your company's reputation too. You may have a number of questions and you may believe that you have been falsely accused of abandoning a construction project. It is very important to handle these types of cases with caution.
