Considerations in Delay & Loss of Productivity Claims
Our experienced construction lawyers will review the variables that led to delay or a loss of productivity, such as:
Excusable or Non-Excusable Delay – Our construction lawyers can review your contract to determine if you are entitled to more time. We can investigate whether the cause of the delay was due to weather, labor strikes, access issues, acts of God, other trades, changes, or other factors that provide you with the right to additional time.
Compensable or Non-Compensable – We can also review if you are able to recover for the time-related costs associated with the delay based on the language in your construction contract.
Delay Damages – If your delay is compensable, we can analyze what types of damages you can recover, such as unabsorbed home office overhead or field office overhead. We can also analyze the standard of proof to determine how you will need to establish these damages.
The attorneys at Herrig, Vogt & Hensley, LLP have the in-house resources, experience, and knowledge to assist in putting your best factual and legal position forward.
Evaluating Your Claim
To determine the potential value of your claim, our seasoned construction lawyers will consider the following:
Measurement of Inefficiencies – We will consider various methods to evaluate your claim, such as the measured mile, modified total cost, total cost, or industry studies.
Cause of the Delay or Loss of Productivity – We will consider the factors that affected your damages, such as stacking of trades, overtime, out-of-sequence work, adverse weather, change orders, or proper coordination.
Recovery Issues – We will also evaluate which contractual clause provides a legal basis for you to recover, whether you complied with all applicable notice requirements and whether you may have waived any rights under the contract.
