What Is a Breach of Contract?
When one of the parties fails to live up to its contract or legal agreement obligations, a breach is said to have occurred. The other party has various rights, which may include suing for damages resulting from the contract’s breach. In typical cases, plaintiffs can sue for lost profits, lost value of time, out of pocket expenses, attorney fees, and, possibly, other types of damages. Depending on the industry, there can be other rights to sue to find a contract void, to retract it via a “rescission,” or to get an injunction, which is an order from a court telling another party to “do” or “not do” a particular thing.
Our attorneys will be able to advise you about what types of damage you might be legally eligible for if a contract has been breached.

Breaches of contracts are common in the business world. Sometimes the party breaching the contract has a legally acceptable excuse. Often, they do not.
