Construction mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution where a trained mediator will work with both parties in a dispute to come to agreed upon outcome. Once an agreement is reached, both parties will sign a legally binding Memorandum of Understanding agreeing to the terms of the resolution.
Construction arbitration is also a form of alternative dispute resolution in which a Jacksonville construction dispute lawyer will present arguments to an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators, often with a background in the construction industry. Once both arguments are presented, the panel will present a legally binding decision for both parties.
When one or more contracted parties cannot come to an amicable resolution and do not wish to choose alternative dispute resolution methods, the case will be tried through litigation. Either a judge or jury will hear arguments and evidence presented by a Jacksonville construction dispute attorney and will come to a verdict based upon local, state, or federal laws related to the case. Litigation is often thought to be more time consuming and costly than mediation or arbitration, so it is often seen as a last result when faced with a construction dispute.
