Proving Breach of Contract
In order to succeed in a breach of contract case, you must prove a valid contract existed in the first place. Once it is proven that a contract exists, you must next prove that there was a legitimate breach.
Contract breaches happen in various ways, and typically involve one party refusing to follow through with their end of the deal. For instance, with regard to service contracts, a breach may happen if one party fails to pay the other for services or if one party fails to perform the services it was paid to perform. In business contracts regarding purchase and sale of a business, a breach may occur if the selling company misled the purchasing company by failing to disclose its true financial standing.
The following are the common remedies for breach of contract:
- Compensatory damages – A monetary award to substitute what was promised by the terms of the contract.
- Restitution – An order for the breaching party to pay back the other party the amount paid initially to make the aggrieved party “whole” again.
- Specific performance – Forcing the breaching party to perform the service or deliver the goods that were promised in the contract.
- Punitive damages – Meant to punish the breaching party if the breach is especially heinous.
