Griffiths & Armour
The third part of our series from insurance broker Griffiths & Armour explores the problems that can arise from failing to follow a tight brief.
In the first of a new series from insurance broker Griffiths & Armour examining contractual risks and liability claims, we look at design defects and ways to avoid them.
This month's article from Griffiths & Armour explains the benefits of net contribution clauses (NCCs) and clauses which limit an engineer's liability. The intention behind an NCC is for an engineer’s liability in a multi-party dispute to be limited to an equitable proportion of any losses. It seeks to modify the effects of joint and several liability, a principle which otherwise applies in circumstances where more than one party is liable to the same claimant for the same loss.
