Delayed Performance and Unexpected Delays

Delayed Performance and Unexpected Delays in Construction

Missouri Construction Litigation Attorney

Delays in construction projects can be the result of a variety of factors and scenarios that arise during the course of the project. These factors include material backups, weather, unforeseeable defects or obstacles, or design problems. Delays often create disputes and tension between the owner. contractor, subcontractor, architect, and/or suppliers.

Attorney Kevin J. Dolley provides guidance to parties to construction disputes throughout Missouri and works hard to protect his client's rights and financial interests. Sometimes delay problems are resolved without resort to legal action. Legal counsel is often needed to address the proper course of action and the merits of possible legal action.

Is Additional Time Possible?

First and foremost, it should be determined if it is possible to give or allow for additional time to complete the phase or project. Most construction contracts include a date that all work must be completed. Sometimes, a relationship between two parties is more important than enforcing the technical terms of the contract. Construction attorney Kevin J. Dolley is skilled and experienced in negotiation and can help a company retain its relationships and determine if effective solutions exist that avoid the potential cost and expense of litigation.

Jointly Caused Delays

Generally, a party will not be liable for delay unless the reason for the delay was within the party's control or was caused by that party. Further, many courts refuse to punish a party when the claimant was also a cause of the delay. However, if fault can be allocated then a court will do so in determining if one party is entitled to damages.
