When a construction project is designed, planned or initiated, those that are part of the project expect that it will go as plan. While this is an ideal situation, it is very common that some obstacles will be encountered. In some cases, these issues can be resolved immediately and fairly easily; however, this is not always the case. Some issues might result in major delays and could be difficult to resolve without coming to new agreements. Construction law issues can get rather complex, and because of that, parties to a construction project might have to go through construction litigation to settle any disputes that arise.
