Why Construction Lawsuits Arise
Construction litigation typically involves multiple parties and many interrelated agreements. Construction projects commonly require participation, financial commitment, and bearing of risk for all or most of the following separate parties:
- Owners and developers;
- Architects, prime contractors, or construction managers;
- Many different trade subcontractors, material and equipment suppliers of all kinds;
- Consulting, testing, and design engineering firms of many different disciplines;
- Insurance companies and surety bonding companies providing various forms of insurance to many of these parties;
- Construction lenders;
- Firms that specialize in providing construction scheduling, project management, or inspection services
In addition, this complex of interrelated contractual relationships operates under the auspices of numerous state and federal common law and regulatory schemes, including environmental regulations, OSHA requirements, zoning restrictions, state and local building codes, municipal ordinances, mechanic’s lien laws, labor laws, union rules, and various permitting and licensing statutes.
Put all of these competing interests together, and major contract disputes and other business disagreements are bound to arise. Our Des Moines construction litigation lawyers have the experience needed to understand these complex contractual relationships and legal issues. We can help you file such claims, or defend your company from them.
