Soil and soil-related issues are impactful in an astonishing number of construction claims and lawsuits. Are construction delays costing your client money? Is soil a factor? If your client has a construction-related lawsuit and is a general contractor, grading contractor, structural engineer, architect, civil designer, inspection company, soil may be related to the claim. Were the soils considered properly during design? It is a tangled web woven on a construction site, given the interaction between prime and subcontractors, inspection duties, duty to protect, control of the site, duty of design professionals, etc.
