If a project I undertook went above and beyond the scope that was agreed to, do I legally qualify to get paid for that even though neither of us brought it up during the project run?

Question Details: During the project run, the client kept adding tasks outside the project scope that added to our cost. At the project conclusion, the client asked if the cost remained same, to which we answered no. We billed for an extra 10% of the original cost that both of us had agreed on. Do I qualify legally to get paid those extra charges, even though no party discussed it during the project run? We were trying to absorb extra cost as much as we could, and in fact did absorb half of the extra costs already, which was notified to the client as well.
