Practical Defenses to Resolve Impact Damages

Most owners and contractors are aware of different types of claims – change, differing site condition, suspension of work, acceleration, and termination claims. While most are aware of the direct costs associated with these claims, many are not familiar with the concept of impact damages and how these damages are additive to the direct and the delay costs arising from claims.

In this session, industry veterans Amanda Amadon, and James G. Zack, Jr., will discuss impact damages and what they may include. You will gain a better understanding of impact damages and the issues surrounding this form of damages. This session will also explore 10 types of impact damage claims. For each of the 10 types of impact damage claims, Amadon and Zack, Jr. will identify and discuss one or more potential defenses owners may employ to analyze and resolve impact damage issues.

This session will identify legitimate impact damages and some “claim games” centering on impact damages – how to identify these and how to defend against them. You will get suggested defenses against such games – some of which require contract language while other defenses are more pragmatic. The intent of the session is to advise project participants in how to resolve impact damages on the site and not in the courtroom.

You will become fully conversant with the ins and outs of impact damages, and how to prepare legitimate impact damage claims; how to analyze such claims; and how to resolve such claims. This unique session will deal with this very specialized form of claim damages in a practical manner.
