Breach of Contract and Compensation
Jeffrey Breit—January 21, 2022
If you have experienced a breach of contract, you may be entitled to compensation. You can do this by filing a lawsuit against the party that failed to meet its obligations under the contract. Here’s how you can file a lawsuit: re-read the contract and look for a section that deals with remedies for breach. In some contracts, the other party will have a certain amount of time to resolve the problem or file a lawsuit if the other party does not.
The best defense for breach of contract claims is that you did not breach the contract. Each case is different, but in most cases, the parties agree on the existence of a contract, that the contract is enforceable, and that you performed your obligations under the contract. However, in some situations, a claimant may have to settle for a lower amount than the damages awarded by the other party. If you cannot agree on a lower amount, you can file a breach-of-contract lawsuit.
Another option is to hire a lawyer. There are times when a breach of contract can be avoided by attempting to resolve the issue between the parties. For example, if the homeowner hired a contractor to paint a neighbor’s house, but the contractor failed to complete the project by the deadline, he could file a lawsuit to recoup monetary damages. In other instances, it may be necessary to take the case to court in order to recover monetary damages.
