Construction disputes could stem from various issues

On Behalf of | Dec 28, 2021 | Uncategorized

There could be a multitude of things that might not always work out as planned on the site of a new construction project. Companies in California may find that it can be difficult to plan for every possibility and any issues that arise could create intense conflict among the parties involved. Understanding some common causes of construction disputes could prove integral to taking measures to reduce the chances of conflict, but preventing all sources of dispute could prove an impossible feat at times. 

While studies indicate that construction disputes can stem from a variety of concerns, there are some issues that may prove more common than others, such as: 

  • Contract errors:  Errors within the terms of a contract and breach of contract are two common examples of issues that could create intense construction disputes. 
  • Scope of work:  Changes to the scope of work can also increase the risks of conflict, as such issues could affect virtually every aspect of the project. 
  • Unexpected outcomes:  There are a variety of scenarios in which projects may experience delays and such unexpected outcomes can be a source of unrest. 
  • Financial unrest:  Financial concerns such as late payments or failure to pay for services rendered could also increase the chances of disputes. 

Issues surrounding allegations of poor job performance also continue to be a common source of conflict in the construction industry. 

It is no secret that construction disputes can be intense matters that could disrupt operations and leave the parties involved facing a variety of financial hardships. Individuals in California who encounter such conflict and wish to protect their interests could benefit from retaining the services of an attorney for advice on the best course of action with which to proceed. An attorney can help a client make informed choices about all his or her options for dispute resolution and assist in developing a strategy with which to seek the best outcome achievable given the circumstances.
