Am I Able to File a Breach of Contract Lawsuit?
There are many different scenarios in which a contract can be breached. Generally, a contract has been breached when one of the involved parties fails to perform as promised, when a party fails to perform within a specified time frame, or the party fails to perform at all.
This can apply to a wide range of contract types, including but not limited to:
- Sales agreements
- Commercial leases
- Landlord-tenant agreements
- Promissory notes
- Prenuptial agreements
- Separation agreements
In most of these scenarios, claims of breach of contract deal with written agreements, but filing a lawsuit for breach of an oral contract is possible in some situations as well.
Every situation is different and the laws that govern breach of contract claims can be complex. It is highly recommended that you consult an attorney to increase your chances of recovering what you are rightfully owed.
Why You Need a Breach of Contract Lawyer
Lawyers that deal with contracts can assess your claim, determine its validity, and proceed through the proper channels to see to it that your claim is heard in a court of law.
Cases involving a minor breach, a material breach, or a fundamental breach must all be approached differently due to their varying natures.
In the case of a lawsuit that focuses on a breach of contract, there are several possible outcomes that you can achieve if you successfully prove your case.
Those outcomes can include:
- Monetary Compensation – The amount that this sort of judgment includes will depend on the circumstances surrounding the case. In general, the non-breaching party will be placed in a position they should have been in had the agreement not been breached.
- Completion of Performance – Some judgments may compel the breaching party to complete the service agreed upon in the initial contract. This is often referred to as specific performance.
