The United States is currently one of the largest markets for construction in the world. During the recession that took place between December 2007 and June 2009, construction stalled for the first time in years. However, in recent years the construction market has started to grow again with over $1.23 billion being invested in construction projects. While these numbers are good for the growth of United States industries, the increase in construction expenditures has also led to an increase in construction related litigation.
What is construction litigation? It is the type of litigation that occurs when disputes arise during any stage of the construction process. When construction litigation happens, both parties involved have usually been unable to resolve multiple issues, leading them to turn to the court system for conflict resolution. Even though many industries experience routine litigation, when construction is involved, the professional reputation of a contractor or the financial future of a business are often at stake.
When you find yourself involved in a construction related dispute, you must take steps to protect your legal rights while preserving your professional future. The financial settlements related to construction litigation are often large, leading to high stake cases. Attempting to handle a case with so much dependent upon the outcome all by yourself could prove disastrous.
