Breach of Contract
A contract case usually comes before a judge because one or both parties claim that the contract was breached. A breach of contract is a failure, without legal excuse, to perform any promise that forms all or part of the contract.
If one party to a contract does not live up to its side of the bargain, that is known as breach of contract, and the other party can sue for any damages that resulted from the breach. These damages are not necessarily physical. They can also include profits lost on sales that fell through and time wasted in waiting for deliveries that did not arrive as promised.
Breach of contract is a fairly common occurrence in the world of business, and happens for various reasons. At Boyd Law, we represent clients in all types of breach of contract cases, including:
