From problems involving a single-family home to issues stemming from complicated multi-million-dollar projects, the attorneys at Callison Tighe are poised to help clients resolve a range of residential or commercial construction disputes.
Construction litigation often becomes complicated due in part to the sheer number of parties in even small residential projects. A simple construction project typically involves contractors and subcontractors, as well as engineers and architects. Larger developments or commercial construction also can include, business partners, developers, consultants, banks and lenders, and other entities.
The types of construction claims that can arise are almost as varied. Construction litigation can include claims of negligence, breach of contract, construction defects, suretyship or breach of warranties. Allegations of faulty installation, structural problems or defective materials also are common.
