Why Do You Need A Lawyer?
Breach of contract cases can become complex legal issues depending on the terms of the contract. Correctly interpreting the terms of the contract to establish a breach is essential, especially when something as simple as a word or phrase can change whether you have a breach eligible for compensation through a claim. Working with an attorney who is familiar with contract law can help you establish a case that will give you an edge throughout the claims process – especially if the other party has also hired an attorney.
What Damages Can I Recover?
In breach of contract cases, plaintiffs are often able to recover compensatory or restitution damages for any material damages that occurred because of a contract breach. If no harm resulted from the breach or damages were strictly immaterial, you may only be able to recover nominal damages. In some cases where damage was minimal or nonexistent, you may not be able to recover any form of damages through a claim.
However, if you and the other contract parties established conditions for compensation in the event of a contract breach, the court may enforce those conditions in your claim. These liquidated damages often apply whenever difficulties determining the amount of damages arises. However, a court may modify the compensation if liquidated damages far outweigh a reasonable estimation of the harm caused.
