Contract litigation often involves breach of contract claims as well as other claims that might arise out of or be related to a contract. Such claims may include, for example, an action for goods sold and delivered, or for services rendered. By law, people and entities damaged as a result of a breach of contract are entitled to damages. The measure of these damages will be determined by a court of law based on the evidence presented by the parties. If no damages can be proved, then none will be awarded. If you are involved in a contract dispute, or a dispute that has arisen from a contract, a lawyer will be able to explain your rights and help protect your interests.
Specific performance of a contract also may be an available remedy under certain circumstances. This means that instead of damages, a plaintiff seeks to require performance of the contract.
