How construction forepersons can help reduce worker injuries

Whether a job site is a small, residential lot or a large commercial one, contractors can suffer debilitating injuries. Even in a situation in which workers take certain safety precautions, they can still be injured because someone else did not do their due diligence to protect them from harm.

When architects make mistakes: What to watch for

A look at some precautions contractors should take with AOB agreements, P.1

Last time, we began looking at the issue of assignment of benefit claims, and the financial strain they are putting on Florida’s homeowner’s insurance industry.

Work with experienced advocate to address problems with unlicensed contractors, P.1

Construction is an industry where there are a great many variables at play, and it common for problems to arise. Quality contractors not only know how to prepare properly for a job, including obtaining the proper licensure for the job, but also how to effectively address issues as they come up so that the consumer is satisfied and they meet their contractual obligations. As a recent article points out, though, problems can arise for consumers when they work with unlicensed contractors, particularly when they don’t know their rights.
