Contract disputes can be resolved with the right support

When you're putting together a contract with a new contractor, construction team or other entity, it's a good idea to talk about how you'll handle disagreements. If you don't, you may later find that you're dealing with contract disputes that are difficult to overcome.

Choosing to include a clause in your contract to state how you'll handle disagreements is a good idea. Though you may not want to talk about the possibility of a serious disagreement, knowing how to handle one is important.

Owner to remove dog after dangerous attack in Florida

If a dog is dangerous, it's normal for people to want to have it removed from their neighborhood. After all, if that dog decides to become aggressive, it could hurt or even kill someone.

After an attack in a Florida neighborhood, one dog has been removed. According to the victim, he was walking his 5-pound, 3-year-old mini-poodle when a large dog started charging at him. The large dog went after the smaller dog, but the pursuit led to injuries for the 86-year-old man. He suffered from rope burn caused by the leash as he attempted to keep his small dog out of the other dog's mouth.

How do you deal with mold in a property?

As you may know, the impact of mold can be profound. It sets in as a result of uncontrolled moisture incursion, because of high humidity or as a result of other issues in the home or other kind of property.

Have you tried these ways of reducing the likelihood of disputes?

In construction, you may find you're involved in a dispute if one of the parties breaches the construction contract. Construction disputes can also happen because of delays, not meeting the conditions of a contract or because one party is just making unsubstantiated claims.

Disputes are frustrating, but there are steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of disputes occurring. For example, some helpful tips include:

  • Carefully reading any contract you have and having your attorney review it
  • Planning out your team's work or your construction plans ahead of beginning work to eliminate the risk of falling behind or being delayed
  • Dealing with problems the moment they arise instead of pushing them aside
  • Keeping schedules realistic and having a plan for delays and disruptions to the schedules

An insurance defense attorney helps protect your bottom line

Insurance companies have a job to do: They have to make sure they pay out but also protect their bottom line. Insurance defense isn't about limiting payouts to deserving patrons. Instead, it's about protecting insurance companies against false claims and exaggerated claims that could put stress on the company's finances.

If your company is being sued or has a claim filed with it, it's important to have a team on your side. The right legal assistance does make a difference.

Is water incursion in your new home due to construction defects?

Thanks to its ecosystems and weather patterns, Florida is an incredibly wet state. Much of the land that builders and developers currently work on was once wetland or at least soil with improper drainage. Engineers and architects have found many ways to work around naturally wet soils, allowing for the construction of buildings in places that would once have been uninhabitable.

Even areas that are naturally dry at the soil level can have issues with water due to tropical storms or the proximity to large bodies of water like the ocean. Engineers, architects and construction professionals must pay careful attention to how they manage groundwater and rainwater when building in Florida. The right materials and designs are important for keeping homes stable and dry.
