Similar to most businesses, the construction industry has had to evolve in order to follow health and safety protocols the pandemic has brought. In both Oregon and Washington states, construction projects were paused and unpaused based on if projects were deemed essential and if workers could maintain social distancing.
Due to these unforeseeable circumstances, not all contracts could be met based on the the terms set prior to COVID and changes such as how long the project would take, pricing, and etc. had to be monitored closely or amended.
Contracts and legal documents have a lot of moving parts and can be confusing. Most have time constraints as well. If you are dealing with claims or disputes and need help figuring out the next best step, contact us to schedule an appointment.
