Our firm has taken on the defense of another equipment leasing case involving construction equipment. Why those getting ready to lease equipment (of any kind) don’t have an attorney review the contact before signing, is puzzling.
In looking at the facts of this case the fighting issue will involve the actual equipment supplied to the contractor and the receipt and delivery documentation. Before signing off on the equipment lease documents including the delivery receipt pay a lawyer a couple of hundred dollars to review it. To do otherwise on a piece of $80,000 equipment is foolish.
