Construction Litigation Lawyers for West Texas and Southern New Mexico

Residential and Commercial Construction matters frequently involve many different parties. Depending on the size of the project and the alleged damages—it is often the case that each construction contractor involved in the project will be sued, regardless of their potential liability. Plaintiff's lawyers do this for two reasons: first, they are afraid they might not join all the necessary parties to the lawsuit; and second, to require the Defendants to ferret out who is to blame for the Plaintiff's damages. We have found that this practice is typically counterproductive.

As a construction specialist, you may have difficulty getting paid for work you have done. If you are a subcontractor and the general contractor fails to pay you, you may have the right to file a mechanics' lien against the property where you performed work. Additionally, if you installed removable appliances and frames, you may be able to remove those installed items to recover your loss. Additionally, you may have the right to foreclose against the entire project on the property. There are a number of avenues to protect your investment of time, labor and goods in a construction project. Contact Firth, Bunn, Kerr, Neill for assistance.
