VERTEX experts, Jeffrey Katz, William J. McConnell, Andrew Sargent, and STMD Law LLP attorney Ali Salamirad , were recently published in the ABA Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Law Journal. “Understanding Construction Scheduling – A Critical Path to Successful Claims Handling,” provides comprehensive insights into forensic schedule analysis, with graphical examples to simplify complex concepts that were prepared with assistance from VERTEX’s Hannah Stefaniak.
The article covers types of delays and reviews accepted methods of forensic schedule analysis, including the pros and cons of these methods and how they are applied. It also discusses the law of construction delay claims, including applicable contractual terms from various contract forms and relevant case law. The insights are not only applicable to insurance and surety claim handlers – who often need to evaluate and respond to claims involving delay issues, and make coverage decisions accordingly – but any party in a construction dispute involving delays.
