Learning about construction law in Florida

Throughout our practice, we have seen too many people with little to no construction law knowledge come in for a consultation. These people feel contractors or construction companies have wronged them in some way, but they have no idea what remedies are available to them.

We know that when you are hiring a contractor to work for you, the last thing you are thinking about is construction law. However, we want to help you understand how learning at least a little about this legal field can help should your project suffer problems. While we routinely advise those starting a construction project to seek legal counsel first, we also know that many are not going to take this step.

With that in mind, the purpose of this post is to lay a foundation for your education in Florida construction law. The section below contains two common construction issues for which an attorney consultation is advisable.

Disputes: Costly disputes between you and your contractors can occur at any time and may delay or stop your project. Having a lawyer at the ready can help you navigate disputes successfully and get your project back on line in a timely manner.

Defects: If a contractor does inferior work or cuts costs by using substandard materials, your entire project could suffer. A construction law attorney can help you take appropriate action against your contractor to recoup your losses so that you can have the work done properly.

Because construction law is a complex and specialized area, the examples above are far from an extensive listing of potential legal issues. Learning about this field's intricacies can help you avoid being taken advantage of or otherwise harmed. Please continue your education by visiting our website or reaching out to our attorneys.
