A contract is an agreement between parties, made either in writing or orally, that creates mutual obligations enforceable by law. When one party commits a breach of contract, the other party can be entitled to damages based on the breach. Some of the most common Breach of Contract Cases are listed below:
- Landlord/Tenant Disputes
- Employee Agreements
- Non-Compete Agreements
- Purchase Agreements
- Construction Contracts
- Real Estate Contracts
When a Breach of Contract occurs, the Plaintiff is entitled to certain damages. These damages include:
- Compensatory Damages- damages that are meant to make the Plaintiff "whole" again. Examples include what the Plaintiff would have received from the contract had the Defendant not breached it.
- Specific Performance- ordering the breaching party to follow the terms of the contract they agreed to. For example, if the seller of a home breaches the contract and does not want to sell their home after executing the contract, a Judge can order them to fulfill their contractual obligation and sell the home.
- Liquidated Damages- damages that are specified in the contract in case of a breach. For example, if a real estate contract states the closing will take place on a certain date, the parties can agree that the seller will pay the buyer a specified amount of money for everyday after the scheduled date until the closing takes place.
