Delay Damages

Construction Law Attorneys in Longmont

With any construction project, avoiding delays is crucial for contract compliance and cost control. Depending on the size and scope of the project, lost time can result in the loss of thousands of dollars lost for construction firms, contractors, and land developers.

Of course, delays can and often do happen and, when this is the case, a solid construction contract should outline what to do in the event of delayed work. In addition to helping you draft solid contracts outlining the obligations of your contractors, our Longmont construction law attorneys can assist you in pursuing litigation for damages in the event of delays outside your control.

For more information on how we can help you seek compensation for delay damages, contact Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. at (720) 809-8310.

Understanding Your Legal Options as a Landowner

When a project is delayed due to the failure of a contractor or subcontractor to complete work on schedule, landowners may pursue compensation for the resulting damages.

As a property owner, you have several options when it comes to seeking damages. These include:

  • Liquidated Damages: If you pursue liquidated damages, the contractor who caused/is causing the delay may be required to pay a specific dollar amount every day the delay continues.
  • Termination of Contract: It may be possible to rescind or terminate the contract with the contractor and seek alternative contractors to complete the project.
  • Mediation: Pursuing damages through mediation allows you and the contractor to come to a mutual agreement regarding recourse and compensation.
  • Litigation: When mediation/settlement negotiations are not possible or appropriate, litigation may be necessary. Our firm can represent you during this process.

At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., we understand the importance of a timely resolution to all construction matters. We work efficiently in order to help minimize construction delays as much as possible, but when mediation is not possible, we are fully prepared to represent your best interests before a judge or jury.
