Dallas Construction Lawyers
Proven Experience Resolving Complex Construction Disputes
The challenges faced by lawyers and litigants in large, multi-party construction litigation are unique. Often, there are clearly bona fide construction defects on a project or property but linking those defects to the specific negligence that caused it can be difficult. Alternatively, an absence of insurance or coverage issues create a difficulty for a project owner to hold the proper party responsible. For general contractors and subcontractors, getting sucked into a large construction dispute simply because you were involved in a project or assisted in some issue that went wrong, that doesn’t mean you have liability. Nevertheless, sometimes the cost of defending in these situations is worse than the alleged damages. Invariably, there may be issues concerning arbitration under the prime contract or perhaps as a non-signatory you wish to avoid or compel arbitration.
Our firm is familiar with these scenarios and has aggressively prosecuted and defended claims involving these very issues. Lyons & Simmons, LLP has successfully defended construction cases where the alleged damages were a significant amount as well as obtained settlements and judgments on behalf of clients where the damages were substantial. In 2013, our attorneys obtained a settlement that resulted in one of the top 10 largest reported settlements in Texas according to VerdictSearch in a large, multi-party construction dispute involving a residential development.
