NYC Breach of Contract Construction Lawyer from Richman Law Firm PLLC

Superior Skill, Superior Work Ethic, Superior Results

When you enter a legally binding construction contract, you expect both parties involved to honor it. Sometimes, however, one party doesn’t adhere to the terms set forth, requiring legal action. In these cases, you need an New York breach of contract construction lawyer from Richman Law Firm PLLC.

What is a Breach of Contract Attorney?

Contract construction work should always include a contract attorney between the construction company and the client, specifying the terms of the construction work to be completed. When one party fails to uphold the expectations set forth, it’s called a breach of contract attorney.

With a minor breach, it’s sometimes best not to pursue legal action. Material breaches, on the other hand, are more serious and involve damages and possible financial loss. These types of cases require a breach litigation attorney who can help you recover any losses you incur.

In construction cases, the New York breach of contract attorney may apply to scheduling, faulty or incomplete workmanship, or failure to perform a specific obligation outlined in the agreement.

Types of Contract Attorney Construction Breach

If you’ve been involved in a New York breach of a construction contract attorney, knowing what kind of contract attorney breach occurred matters when presenting your case in court. Four basic classifications can apply to your case, which may mean you are entitled to recovering damages.

Legal Definition of Owner-Caused Delay

In an owner-caused delay, the owner of the building or property fails to prepare the area for the construction team by the date agreed upon in the contract. An owner-caused delay can result from a variety of circumstances ranging from funding issues to unclear contracts to the owner interfering with ongoing construction and hindering progress. Owner-caused delays can lead to projects not being completed on time, which can prove costly for everyone involved.

New York City Breach of Construction Contract Attorney

Subsequent purchaser claims can be more challenging to prove than problems like owner-caused delays. Subsequent purchasers can’t always file lawsuits against the construction contractor who did not honor a previous contract attorney. In situations like these, a subsequent purchaser may file a claim against the original purchaser for not disclosing all information about a building’s or property problems while work was being conducted.

Substantial Performance Doctrines

Substantial performance applies when the work performed is adequate despite the breach of contract attorney. If the construction company didn’t complete all of the specified duties, but their work still serves the owner’s purpose in the intended manner, this is grounds for substantial performance. Substantial performance cases usually don’t apply with material breaches, as they often do not incur a financial loss.

Breach of Contract Attorney

Tort claims in construction breach of contract attorney cases constitute negligence. In these cases, one party fails to carry out a duty specified in the contract attorney, thereby causing a financial loss for the claimant. While tort isn’t as specific to New York breach of contract attorney cases as the other three classifications, it can still be relevant to these types of claims.

    As an attorney myself I appreciated Scott’s diligence, enthusiasm and communication. We finally got the primary carrier to put up its policy limits so that an underinsurance arbitration can be demanded. I’m confident that Scott will continue to fight to maximize my recovery.

    I was highly recommended to Mr. Scott Richman through a family member of mine. Mr Richman was very professional and attentive to our situation. He walked us through the whole process of what to expect as we were looking to be compensated for our daughter’s injury due to a car accident that she was involved in. His time and attention to our case left a positive impression on us. He answered all our questions, emails and phone calls in a speedily manner. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone else that is looking for a caring and attention to detail lawyer such as him.

    In a pinch, I needed general legal services within 24 hours. After a quick search, I found Scott and his firm and gave them a call. Scott answered the phone, took the time to walk me through what was happening and what I needed done, and then went out of his way to make sure it was taken care of that day. He even met me after business hours to ensure everything was taken care of, even printing out extra copies of everything to make sure I had one on file. I highly recommend Scott and his team for any of your legal needs - he is fantastic!

    Richman Law Firm PLLC is an amazing firm and worth working perusing is you need a lawyer. Scott Richman works hard and took care of everything quickly. He was easy to get a hold of, answering emails and phone calls immediately almost every time. He settled my case within a little over 8 weeks. He was in constant contact, keeping me up to date on the progress of my case. After settling my case, he reached out often to be sure I received my check and to confirm that all looked as promised per our contract. He answered every question, never making me feel stupid or small. He is a great guy to work with, very nice and very professional. Hire this firm, you won’t regret it.
