Construction Litigation

Construction Litigation Services

Construction projects involve remodeling, renovating, or constructing infrastructure, structures, or buildings. Additionally, construction projects require a significant amount of time, finances, and resources. Even making a family home demands the coordination of skilled workers to create a structure as per the client’s specifications. There are many tasks beyond the construction site that need to be performed to handle any issues that may arise and ensure that structures are well built. 

Our Birmingham construction lawyers have more than 40 years of experience in helping developers, engineers, material suppliers, contractors, architects, and subcontractors with various legal issues. The construction industry is complicated due to the financial factors, the number of stakeholders involved in each project, and the number of regulations controlling the industry.

Working with a contractor in Birmingham, Alabama, can be stressful. This is because a contractor can walk away from your project if he or she wishes.

Common Causes of Construction Litigation

While working in the construction field and related practice areas, we’ve discovered that construction litigation is caused by: 1. Construction quality – If construction is not up to par, the structure can potentially injure visitors. 2.
