Progress Claims’ approach to evaluating cost and damages begins with a performance audit of the contractor’s costs. Based on the results of its claim analysis and audit, Progress Claims then prepares an independent estimate of costs the contractor may be entitled to recover under the appropriate remedy granting clause of the contract (e.g., suspension of work, differing site conditions, changes clause) or under alternative breach of contract or tort theories. The damage review will include an analysis of the contractor’s efforts to mitigate its damages, evaluation of its cost accounting system, and analysis of the propriety of the method employed to calculate damages. Progress Claims also provides property loss consulting services for the insurance industry, helping insurance companies adjusters and attorneys resolve property loss claims expeditiously and fairly.
