Delay Damages Lawyers in Broomfield

Construction Job Delays Should Not Cost You

A standard expectation in any construction contract is deciding when the work should be done. Some projects have absolute deadlines and others have a more flexible ending point. In either circumstance, a delay to the construction project can end up costing all parties involved thousands of dollars as equipment goes unused, labor gets wasted, alternative jobs are missed, and so forth.

For an initial consultation with our law firm, call (720) 809-8310.

Representing Contractors & Landowners Alike

Our Broomfield delay damages attorneys proudly represent contractors, subcontractors, landlords, and other parties in delay damages cases. If you have lost money due to a construction delay that should have been avoided, then we want to hear from you. It would be our pleasure to help your company explore its options and find a way to get the compensation you deserve.

Two potential conclusions to a damages delay case include:

  • Liquidated damages: For each day that the construction project is delayed, you can demand liquidated damages. Typically, liquidated damages are set at a flat per-day amount that should be reflective of the average amount of money your company is losing each day you are not working on a construction project. The daily amount could increase after a certain delay threshold is passed. For example, you could demand a certain amount of delay damages for each day in the first two weeks of a delay and double that amount for any day after.
  • Contract termination: It might be in your best interest to simply revoke a contract given to the contractor causing the project delay. However, the contract probably has language to penalize you for terminating it early. With our legal assistance, you can find a way to legally break the contract early without incurring any penalties.

Negotiation or Litigation Can Solve Delays

Solving a construction delay that is costing everyone money and resources can call upon the services of a conference room or a courtroom. At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., we can use either or both approaches, depending on what would work the best for your unique situation.

Our Broomfield delay damages lawyers can represent you during:

  • Mediation: If the courtroom can be avoided, then it is often in the best interests of all parties to do so. Mediation allows you and the parties causing the delay to discuss a solution on your terms, without a judge’s or jury’s intervention. An attorney from our firm can act on your behalf during mediation, pursuing your goals as if they were our own.
  • Litigation: Many contractors or landowners who cause an expensive construction delay do not want to admit fault because that would be akin to admitting financial liability for the delay damages. When this happens, our lawyers can prepare your case for litigation in court.
