This reprint of a 1996 book examines the legal issues and discusses the case law concerning the availability of consequential damages (including lost profits) and punitive damages in a construction contract dispute. The book first reviews the case law concerning how to measure damages. Thereafter, the book is divided into three general sections: lost profits, other consequential damages, and punitive damages. The narrative is a discussion of the pertinent case law with citations. This book provides information on the law but not legal advice.
