We recently discussed some points you need to know about alternative dispute resolution that might come in handy if you have to take action because your construction project isn't being handled in the proper way. There are times when you do have to seek legal recourse; however, there is sometimes a chance that you can get things hashed out without having to do this.
Some construction contracts have clauses in them that make it mandatory for disputes to go through the arbitration process. This is an alternative dispute resolution method that keeps cases out of court. When this is in the contract, there isn't a very good chance that you would be able to work around it. Understanding some of the basic points about this process might help you know what you are going to need to do to get your dispute resolved.
Contractors will usually do the job you pay them to do without any issues. Every now and then, you might run into one who doesn't do a good job or who won't stand behind their work. When this happens, you might end up having to take legal action to be compensated for the damages. We are here to help you when this is necessary.
