Most contractors look forward to the opportunity to have a claim settled in a mutually agreeable fashion. However, a recent decision by The U.S. District Court of Maryland demonstrates the need to consult with your insurer before settling any claims on a project. Jack Morkan and Jack Boyd of Ober|Kaler’s Construction Group join Maryland Construction Network in this podcast to discuss the particulars of the case Perini/Tompkins Joint Venture v. ACE American Ins. Co., and to explain why it is critical your insurance companies be made aware of any claim negotiations.
