Running any type of company comes with the risk that clients or customers will be dissatisfied with the completed work. When it comes to construction issues, company owners, contractors, subcontractors and others involved in a project could find themselves on the receiving end of complaints. In some cases, construction litigation could result.
Florida readers may be interested in a lawsuit recently filed in another state. According to reports, a college has filed the suit against two construction companies and subcontractors that were involved in building a residence hall at the college. The college claims that the workers did not properly install cladding, a weather resistance barrier or other elements that would help prevent leaks in the building. It was noted that the structure has experienced water intrusion in multiple places.
The college claims that the damages will take a substantial amount of money to fix. The institution hopes that the lawsuit will allow it to seek compensation for the expenses that will result from addressing the issues with the building. It was noted that the defendants were contacted for comment regarding the lawsuit, but apparently, none was provided.
Though facing complaints from clients may not be unusual in the construction industry, it can still be a burden to face lawsuits. Florida company owners who have found themselves facing legal claims will certainly want to make sure that they handle those claims as effectively as possible. Construction litigation can be complicated, and owners will undoubtedly want to ensure that they have the right legal support throughout their cases.
