Contracts have always played a vital role in making our world run. The successful operation and growth of any business, or any pursuit in general, often hinges on a contract—an agreement made between two willing entities. Far too often, though, one or more parties fail to follow through. They abandon their commitment. When this happens to you, it can come as a shock.

Elements of a Breach of Contract Claim
A dispute between the two parties in a contract isn't necessarily a breach of contract. There may simply be a disagreement over the terms of the contract that can be resolved through discussion or negotiation. However, this isn’t always the case. You might just be in a position to file a claim. In order for your claim to qualify as a breach of contract, you must demonstrate a number of qualifications, including:
- Proof of the existence of a contract. The courts will need evidence that a contract existed in the first place.
- Proof that the opposing party failed to perform their obligations and that they do not have a substantial reason for this failure.
- Proof of damages resulting from the other party’s failure to perform their obligations.
You might have grounds for legal action if these elements can be proven. Set up a consultation with us right away to review your options and make a truly informed choice going forward.
