Breach of Contract Litigation
Breach of contract is another area of litigation that Mones Law Group, P.C. handles, and it is one of the more common types of civil lawsuits. A breach of contract occurs when a party fails to perform their duties and obligations under a signed contract, in which case the other party can sue the violating party for a breach of contract.
The contract must be legally enforceable and valid in order for a breach of contract case to proceed.
A contract must meet the following criteria:
- The contract must address all the required conditions and terms
- Each party must agree to the terms of the contract
- Each party must have the legal capacity to enter the agreement
- Each party must exchange something of value as part of the contract
- Each party must enter the contract willingly
- The contract must not violate federal or state law
In a successful breach of contract case, the plaintiff may be able to obtain one of the following remedies:
- Compensatory damages: Actual and measurable damages that can be proven, such as lost wages or other incidental damages caused by the breach
- Rescission: Cancels the contract, relieving the plaintiff of having to uphold their end of the contract
- Specific performance: Specific performance of a term in the contract if the above cannot adequately compensate the plaintiff for their losses or when damages cannot be appropriately measured
The above is only a couple of examples of the types of civil litigation Mones Law Group, P.C. handles. For more information about how the firm can help you settle your business law concerns or civil litigation concerns, schedule an initial consultation with Attorney Stuart M. Mones.
