Event Description

Want What You’re Entitled To? Learn to Demonstrate Damages Causation

All too often, construction claim submittals lack the three elements required for success: entitlement, causation, and damages. What claims do often have are page after page of damage calculations with no correlation to the alleged claim entitlement.

Change that, and protect your project profits, by learning to prepare claims that present realistic and supportable damage calculations. Join industry veterans John C. Sween and James G. Zack, Jr. to learn why causation must be the nexus between entitlement and damages—and how to demonstrate that in your claims.

After attending this detailed webinar, you’ll have a firm understanding of all cost types— direct, indirect, impact, and delay—and which are subject to mark-up. You’ll know what you’re required to show to recover delay costs and how to calculate them. And you’ll know when (and how) to include impact costs in your claims. Plus, you’ll be well prepared to mitigate damages, not just demonstrate them.

Session Highlights

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to maximize your chances at damages recovery
  • How to mitigate damages
  • The definition of cost types (direct, indirect, delay, and impact) and examples of each
  • How to calculate specific cost types and how to include them in a claim
  • What damages are typically associated with change orders
  • Which damages are often disallowed in suspension of work claims
  • Special considerations for calculating acceleration damages
  • How a consequential damages contract clause can impact your damage calculations
  • The impact of exculpatory clauses on damages calculations
