Breach of Contract
Contracts exist to ensure both sides know exactly what is expected from the other party. By having a contract, a legally enforceable agreement has been promised and must be upheld. In an unfortunate instance when one side does not live up to the contract, legal assistance can be sought for what is considered a breach of contract. In a breach of contract, one party has not fulfilled the promised duties that had been communicated in the contract terms or makes it impossible for the other party to do so.
A contract can be either verbal or written, though a verbal breach of contract will generally be harder to prove. Any type of deviation from the terms of the contract that results in a different outcome from the intended goals can be considered a breach of contract, though there are some exceptions. If any side of the party believes a breach of contract has occurred, it is best to confer with a lawyer if the two parties cannot settle the problem on their own.
If a breach of contract has been alleged, there are different types of damages that can be sought. Most ways of settling a breach of contract will involve a monetary settlement. Since laws from state to state vary, there will be different statutes of limitations and varying provisions, which makes it advisable to contact a lawyer. Lawyers will be able to make sure the individual understands their legal rights and options, as well as to review a contract to evaluate if a case does exist.
