Event Description


The conduct of a party on a construction project may constitute not only breach of contract but also negligence. In particular, parties that do not have a contractual relationship may allege negligence against one another. Negligence claims vary in scope including injury on site, mismanagement of the project, or a major deficiency in the project arising before or after completion. It is important to understand what obligations arise between parties on a construction project that could give rise to claims in negligence and how to guard against and respond to a claim in negligence.
In this presentation we will review the following aspect of a negligence claim using examples from real cases. 
Topics covered:
  • What is a negligence claim?
  • Concurrent claims in contract and negligence
  • Defences to a negligence claim?
  • Is the negligence claim covered by insurance?
  • Risk Management Strategies
