The Different Types of Claims

A claim is simply an assertion of a party’s right under the terms of a contract or under law.

In the construction industry, this more often than not comes down to either a right to additional time to complete the works, or to additional payment and is very often a combination of the two.

The Institute of Construction Claims Practitioners has a detailed paper on this subject, covering:

  • Claims for Additional Payment for Variations
  • Claims for Extensions of Time
  • Claims for Additional Payment Due to Prolongation
  • Acceleration and Disruption Claims
  • Claims for Damages Under Law
  • Combined or Separate Claims?
