From a young age, many of us are taught to talk through arguments in order to come to some common ground and find a solution. While that might work as kids or when it comes to fights with friends and family members, it’s not exactly that easy when we as adults are engaged in a professional dispute.
For instance, let’s imagine you are remodeling your home. In certain situations, you could find that no amount of talking is going to solve the problem, and legal action is necessary. These situations could include:
- Disagreements about what is and is not a foreseeable delay
- Who should cover unexpected expenses
- Arguments over liability for defective products
- Allegations of a contract breach
- Penalties for non-payment
- Acceptable actions to take in light of a failure to perform work
In these situations, chances are that you are going to have a very different opinion and perspective on the matter than the other party.
And since there may be no personal relationship at stake, neither of you necessarily has a reason to give in to the other, putting completion of the job in jeopardy. Not only is a project on the line when it comes to serious construction disputes, but so is your time and money.
