**MY THOUGHTS ON GIVING TIMELY WRITTEN NOTICE OF A CLAIM **

By Laurence P. Lubka

I have been involved with many claims where the failure to give timely written notice of a claim invalidates that claim. That failure can cause you to lose all of your claim rights. So here are my considered thoughts on the issue of whether you should give timely written notice, in accordance with the contract, of a claim or potential claim.
