What Is Construction Litigation?

Construction litigation is the legal representation of stakeholders in construction projects. Anyone who stands to lose money or profit from a construction project can file a construction lawsuit and kickoff construction litigation. Because many parties are involved in construction projects, anyone can become a plaintiff (the person who files a lawsuit) or a defendant (the person who gets sued).

This May Include:

  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Construction contractors and subcontractors
  • Construction managers
  • Construction workers
  • Lenders and investors
  • Material suppliers
  • Homeowners
  • Businesses
  • Property owners
  • Insurance companies

In public construction projects, even the government can get involved in construction litigation, and cases may arise for a variety of reasons.

What Types of Cases Do You Handle?

The Law Office of Patrick O’Fiel, P.C. handles all of the main types of construction litigation claims in Kerrville, including contract disputes, construction delays, construction defects, and negligence on and off the construction site.

We usually step in when contractors have not been paid and clients are dissatisfied with the work performed. Often, these issues occur at the same time, and it only takes one lawsuit to resolve them.

Will My Case Go to Trial?

Whether your case goes to trial will depend on your goals and the unique details of your case. If you simply want to hold material supplier’s accountable for a costly delay, our Kerrville constructive law team can work to settle your case and get your project back on track.

If you want to hold an architect accountable for negligent design and recover all the money you spent on a failed project, on the other hand, your case may be more complex.

Our Texas firm offers passionate and focused counsel, so we will only take steps that are in your best interests. We seek to resolve cases as quickly and efficiently as possible, but if going to trial is the most effective case strategy, we will not hesitate to do so.
