Delay Damage Lawyers in Gainesville, FL

Florida Construction Attorneys

Project delays can cost anyone involved in the construction process large amounts of money. Therefore, the parties may need a delay damage attorney to recover losses.

Delay Damages

Delays are sometimes caused by project owners, by bad designs, by contractor errors. When project delays are caused due to a breach of contract or negligent design, there are usually legal remedies to compensate a damaged party.

Sometimes contract clauses seem to limit the ability to recover delay damages. These clauses are known as “no damages for delay clauses.” Even though the clause appears in the contract, Florida case law says that the active interference of a party that causes delays will overcome the contract clause. The board certified, construction attorneys at Warner, Sechrest & Butts have experience filing claims for delay damages.
