Pass-Through Claims

 

Don’t confuse pass-through claims with flow down clauses.

Pass?through claims arise in the situation where the owner causes the subcontractor to incur damages. The subcontractor cannot bring a claim directly against the owner because of a lack of privity. However, the subcontractor can bring a claim against the contractor who in turn can assert the claim against the owner on behalf of the subcontractor thereby creating the pass-through claim. This video reviews the pass-through concept and the Severin Doctrine.
