Extent of meaning of ‘consequential loss’

JAY JALA v DDG CONSTRUCTION [2016] (US District Court of Pennsylvania)

The meaning of ‘consequential loss’ has different meanings to different lawyers, particularly in varying jurisdictions and it has sometimes been given a much broader interpretation in the US, resulting in the exclusion having a much greater impact, as this case illustrates. It demonstrates why a supplier would certainly want to contract under US law and a customer would want to contract under English law.
