In court, contractors should illustrate their claims with charts and pictures to help lawyers, juries, and judges understand actual damages. Using visuals helps build a believable case for damages in the event of a delay, disruption, termination, change order, or change of conditions. The best way to prove delay is to chart the critical path schedule for the project, as it was planned and then how it was built. Put everything into graphs and pictures because numbers don't mean much to judges and juries.
