Maryland Construction Litigation Lawyer

Not every construction project will proceed as planned or end the way you expect. When one of the parties involved in a construction project defaults or makes a mistake that leads to a dispute, litigation will likely arise. Our lawyers are qualified and have experience representing clients in construction litigation cases, including the following:

  • Breach of warranty
  • Collections
  • Construction defect claims arising from building code violations, poor design, faulty wiring, etc
  • Construction defect claims
  • Negligence cases
  • Change orders and cost overruns
  • Fraud cases from deceptive trade practices or misrepresentations of quality
  • Enforcing or disputing construction liens.

Construction litigation is usually complex, involving multiple parties, from subcontractors to vendors. Sometimes the insurance companies of construction professionals and union groups get involved in the litigation. Furthermore, the diversity of the parties involved in a construction project can make it hard to identify the person at fault for a mistake.

Our attorneys at Lusk Law, LLC, work closely with every client throughout their case and ensure they are actively involved in making decisions.

As a result, construction litigation requires intense legal work and research, and all must be done expeditiously as construction projects are time-bound. There are many laws and regulations relating to construction, as well as requirements for when and how to file a claim. Therefore, it is crucial to be proactive when confronted with a dispute by retaining the services of our Maryland construction litigation lawyer immediately.

Construction Litigation FAQs

It is not uncommon to have questions if you have a construction dispute, and below we have answered some of the frequently asked ones:

You should contact a construction litigation lawyer as soon as a dispute arises. This could be the breach of a contract, where one party to a construction contract failed to honor its terms before the completion of the project. Also, disputes may arise when a worker is injured or there are issues of safety hazards or poor construction materials.

Most construction contracts have clauses for arbitration and mediation to resolve disputes, as litigation is money and time-consuming. Any decision made during arbitration is legally binding, and both parties must adhere to it. But when there is no arbitration clause, or the parties refuse to reach an agreement, the only option is litigation.

There is no specific time frame for resolving construction disputes, as it depends mainly on the willingness of the parties to reach a resolution. If the parties prefer arbitration to litigation, it could take months, but if they choose to go to court, it could take longer and, in most cases, years.

Retaining an experienced attorney when faced with a construction dispute is always advisable. With all the complexities of construction litigation cases, it is best to have legal representation to protect your rights and interests.
