Daniel A. Kapner recently published an article entitled "The Aftermath: Hurricanes shouldn't be the end of your projects," in the November/December 2017 issue of Construction Today magazine.
In the article, Mr. Kapner provides legal and insurance-related considerations for owners of construction projects and contractors as they develop recovery strategies following hurricanes and other severe weather events. The article summarizes key insurance coverages that may be available following extreme weather events and tactics for pursuing claims. The article also provides contractual considerations relevant to severe weather events such as excusable delays, increases to the costs of the work, claims and notice requirements, and the feasibility of contract termination.
