By examining the implications of the rulings from these seemingly unrelated cases, construction professionals can get a clearer picture of their responsibilities in law towards their direct clients and others.
Furthermore, by understanding the outcomes of these cases and applying the principles, construction industry professionals can prevent situations arising that could otherwise go to litigation.
