A breach of contract is an action that is brought against another party because they have failed to perform the terms of the contract. There are three types of contracts including written contracts, oral contracts, and implied contracts. Of the three types, the easiest to enforce is the written contract.
If you have a dispute or problem involving breach of contract it is best to discuss it with an attorney. The attorney will review your case to determine the best course of action.
The breach of contract may have resulted in damages including some of the following:
- Future profits
- Mental or Physical suffering
- Liquidated Damages
- Attorney’s Fee
When a breach of contract case is filed, both parties will have time to provide discovery. Discovery evidence provides information about the case that will be used in its resolution. It is important to work with an experienced attorney who will work to provide the answers requested and obtain answers required. Discovery may consist of:
- Request for Documentation
- Subpoena for Documents from 3rd Parties
Many breach of contract cases are settled before they get to court. However, should the case get that far, you need the services of a knowledgeable attorney who will represent you in court. Choose a lawyer with experience working on all aspects of a breach of contract case.
