Formation of Agreements

Disputes

Another aspect of this field of law is dispute resolution between the parties involved in construction. Disputes may arise between a builder and a homeowner or between the homeowner and neighbors. An Orange County construction attorney can explain that various courts have held that a construction contractor owes the owner a special duty to perform his or her services in a proper workmanlike manner. For example, the contractor must warn the owner if a proposed design or specifications related to construction has a known potential risk for causing damages. Additionally, various courts have also discussed the duty that an owner has toward a contractor, such as the need to cooperate with him or her. This requires the owner not to interfere or delay his or her work on purpose for an unjustified reason.

Workers' Compensation

Construction law can intersect with workers' compensation law when an employee or other individual is injured at the construction site.
