Call Our Port St. Lucie Lawyers at (888) 899-8161 Today
Construction disputes are a common legal occurrence. These disputes can cause many issues when it comes to completing a project in a timely and efficient manner. Many times, tension is created between contractors and the construction companies due to:
- Communication errors
- Problems with construction sites or materials
- Contract breaches
- Conflicting interests
- Other problems
If you’re caught in the middle of a dispute, speak with our competent Port St. Lucie construction dispute attorneys at Crary Buchanan. We may be able to save you time and money by keeping your case out of the courtroom. At our firm, we are experienced in legal representation, but we understand that construction dispute lawsuits can take a great deal of time. Besides this, they are expensive and may damage your company’s future business opportunities. Instead of taking your case to court, why not hire a mediator to find an efficient and reasonable solution to your problem?
Why choose mediation?
A mediator is an objective third-party hired to settle a dispute. In a construction dispute, the mediator will negotiate with both parties to find a reasonable solution to their problem. Generally speaking, mediation is beneficial because it is confidential. Court hearings are public – mediation is completely private. The only people involved in the mediation process are the disputants and the legal mediator. Mediation is beneficial because it allows each disputant more control over the outcome of their disagreement.
In a court case, a judge or jury decides how the dispute will be settled, but mediation facilitates a dialogue between both parties with the goal of finding a reasonable, unbiased solution. Additionally, a judge may be bound by the law to make certain decisions in court. Outside of the courtroom, parties can reach legal agreements without these obligations. Compliance between mediated parties is usually high. What does this mean? Courtroom disputes may become complicated very quickly while a mediated dispute allows both sides of the problem to work with each other without the added aggravation of a lawsuit. In short, mediation differs from a lawsuit in that it resolves legal conflict outside of the courtroom. Your case will be settled by a skilled legal professional instead of a judge.
Many companies favor the mediation process over traditional court proceedings because it is based on fairness and seeking a mutual agreement between both sides of the problem. Also, mediation saves contractors and construction companies time and money through efficient problem-solving and mutually-beneficial solutions. Sometimes, mediators are able to settle disputes in as little as a few hours.
