The construction industry is a fertile breeding ground for conflict. At any given moment, parties involved in a construction project could find themselves disputing for one reason or another. Disputes and claims can be minor to complex and they can arise at any stage of the project.
If you are currently experiencing a disagreement relating to your construction contract, the scope of work, safety or injury-related issues, non-payment, project delays, or any other issue, these disputes will need to be resolved via dispute resolution. Options for resolution might include alternative dispute resolution (mediation or arbitration) or litigation.
Most people seek to avoid litigation; however, some disputes cannot be resolved by way of mediation or arbitration. Although litigation is a last resort, it is often necessary for situations that require a more aggressive approach. Unlike mediation or arbitration, litigation is typically more costly and time-consuming. Additionally, disputants do not have a say in the final decision. The judge and/or jury will make a final binding decision based on the details and evidence of the case.
