Contractor Scams ExplainedWritten by Mart Gil Abareta

Truly, this is terrible! Giving away a little of your trust to these people to simply do little repairs in your homes will later cost you a lot. The worst thing – you’ll not even get right service that you deserve. A big headache, really…
Know what, not all contractors operate within law. I have here are some tip-offs to potential rip-offs. A less than reputable contractor solicits door-to-door, offers you discounts for finding other customers, just happens to have materials left over from a previous job, only accepts cash payments, asks you to get required building permits, does not list a business number in local telephone directory, tells you your job will be a "demonstration", pressures you for an immediate decision, offers exceptionally long guarantees, asks you to pay for entire job up-front, and suggests that you borrow money from a lender contractor knows.
After reading this article, I just hope that nobody else will become a victim of these contractor scams. Let us all be careful even with small things – such as these home repair stuff – we engage with.

Additionally, mediation which is a typical settlement conference without formalities of court can also cause delay to a court trial. Many courts force lawyers to settle cases prior to trial. Arbitration is a different thing, on other hand. It’s often a binding mini-trial where an informal presentation of matters involved in case is done. Also, trials are usually being scheduled based on court’s schedule, not lawyers’ schedule. With this, cases can take years to be scheduled for trial, especially in some major urban areas.
Last but not least, let’s talk about collection issues. It’s not unusual for someone to have difficulty in collecting compensation from insurance company or person responsible for your injury. The insurance lawyer will have to have a check or draft issued by company. And before they send you money, you’ll be required to sign a release document and file some sort of dismissal motion. Obviously, these things also delay payment.
Indeed, litigation process can really eat up a lot of your time, money and effort. Therefore, it’s sometimes better to settle for less prior to trial than to go through whole process and then end up with a small settlement or perhaps a bad result at trial.
