What are common remedies in breach of contract cases?

Breaches of contracts are common. Construction companies fail to complete their work on time, resulting in a homeowner moving into their house later than expected.

Violating a contract can lead to serious legal troubles

Contracts are meant to provide protections for both parties that sign them. Each has conditions that they must meet. When either side doesn't uphold their end of the contract, a breach of contract has occurred. In some cases, this might lead to a lawsuit.

Review contracts for dispute resolution clauses

Contracts are legal agreements made between parties. When one party doesn't uphold their responsibilities in the contract, there is a chance that the other will take legal action for breach of contract. Not all of these cases end up in a trial court. Instead, many breaches of contract matters are handled through alternative dispute resolution methods. This includes mediation and arbitration, both of which might be specifically included in a resolution clause in the contract.
