Breach of Contract
When an agreement made between two or more parties has failed without a legally valid excuse, a breach of contract has occurred. Typically this happens when the party has failed to perform as promised, makes it impossible for the opposite party to perform what it agreed to in the contract, makes known their unwillingness to perform, or does something contrary to the requirements set forth in the original agreement. Depending on the terms stated in the contract and the nature of the goods or services that form the subject matter of the contractual obligations, the party making the allegation may seek to have the contract enforced legally. A party may also prove that financial harm was caused by the supposed breach in order to receive financial compensation as a result of the breach of contract.
To bring an action for breach of contract, a party must show:
- The existence of a contract (whether it was oral or written)
- The party seeking enforcement fully performed all duties to that contract, or was excused or prevented from doing so
- The other party to the contract breached one or more terms of the contract
- The party seeking enforcement of its rights suffered damages or some other injury proximately related to the other party’s breach of contract
