At the office of Dana J. Watts, Attorney at Law, we understand that there are many people involved and almost any construction project going on these days in Southwest Florida. Contractors, subcontractors, engineers, construction workers, site managers and architects all have a role to play in improving the infrastructure of our communities.
As you may imagine, this leads to some relatively complex disputes in the industry. To make matters more complicated, there are several different rules that could apply to essential details of construction disputes you pursued in the state.
For example, the statute of limitations in Florida on construction defects allows for some leeway depending on when the injured party should have reasonably discovered the problem. That is a common concern, but it is simply one of the many issues our clients have to contend with when trying to settle their construction disputes.
Although we are always prepared to bring a case to trial if it comes to that, we also are sometimes able to settle certain disputes out of court. In the event that all, or at least some, of the parties involved are interested in resolving the matter quickly and efficiently, Florida allows for a variety of alternative dispute resolution formats.
We make a point of ensuring that our clients have the information they need to make the best possible decisions for their futures, whether that takes the form of trial, mediation or some other way of reaching an agreement. Please read more on this and other subjects on our legal site.
