3. Construction Claims

92 Lex provide services for the following construction claims:

a. Construction Delay Claims: Delay claims arise when unforeseen circumstances push a project past the initial agreed-upon deadline. Consequently, this disrupts the intended schedule. There are lots of causes for delays. These include defective plans or permit approvals to factors beyond our control, such as weather. These claims lead to financial or productivity loss on the client’s side.

b. Damage Claims: If a contractor causes any damage to the property while completing the project, the client may hold them liable for this damage by filing a damage claim. If a subcontractor causes damage, you might be responsible for the damage if they don’t have insurance coverage.

c. Price Acceleration Claims: Price acceleration claims occur when the expected project budget increases to complete the job on time or early. The client is the one to file the claim since they’re the ones who carry the costs of the expedited work.

d. Differing Site Conditions Claims: When the actual condition of the project site differs from what the client conveyed in the contract, a different site conditions claim could arise. For example, if the client said the job site is grass and the contractor shows up to a sandpit. In this case, it’s going to be more expensive to build the foundation on the sand. When this happens, the general contractor will file the claim.
