Construction litigation is legal action that results from disputes stemming from building projects. The nature of the construction process often means that disputes are unavoidable. Because of the complexities of the construction process, litigation that comes as a result of building is also necessarily complex.
For instance, what are your rights if you are the second purchaser of a relatively new home? A recent Superior Court of Pennsylvania ruling regarding the Implied Warranty of Habitability has significantly changed the way that courts view your rights to litigate. In light of these complexities, engaging an attorney to advocate for your interests is the wisest course of action. Benner and Wild has successfully litigated on behalf of a variety of parties involved in construction dispute litigation.
Construction litigation can stem from a variety of sources, including: lien claims, defective construction claims, contracts, specifications, payment, and a host of other issues. The dispute can also involve multiple parties, such as builders, contractors and sub-contractors, developers, homeowners, and various tradesmen. Material suppliers and involved lenders can also easily be dragged into litigation. During the dispute, each of these groups or individuals will be seeking to uphold their own interests.
