What is Construction Litigation?
Construction litigation is the area of law covering legal disputes that arise out of building and construction projects. These disputes can arise under both construction agreements and claims of injury or wrongful death caused by negligent behavior. In both cases, construction litigation refers to civil lawsuits involving private parties and is governed by rules and burdens of proof that are distinct from those applicable to criminal prosecution.
Contract disputes that lead to construction litigation sometimes involve simple matters, such as non-payment, work conditions or project deadlines often involving just two parties, the general contractor and a subcontractor. Other times, the contract disputes are complex and involve claims regarding the quality and scope of work performed or matters pertaining to clauses in loan agreements. These are likely to include additional parties, such as suppliers and lenders. Construction litigation involving negligence often centers on defects discovered by homeowners or commercial property owners during or after the construction process. Such discoveries will sometimes lead to lawsuits against builders and construction companies based on claims of defective materials, improper soil analysis and negligent structural engineering.
