Special Defenses in Construction Litigation
Defenses to construction claims draw generally from a number of basic legal areas, including contracts and torts. In a number of contexts, however, statutes and appellate courts have established defenses, limitations of liability, and immunities unique to construction claims. Moreover, litigation over industry-form agreements has created a body of law interpreting common phrases and provisions in those forms and cloaking those provisions with established legal meaning. Learn about defenses and doctrines unique to the construction context and develop a checklist for defenses to construction claims.
