What Is a Breach of Contract?
A breach of contract is easy to identify. What might not be so easy, is determining whether the breach of contract is something that is worth pursuing legally. Determining whether you should take legal action requires you to assess if the breach was material and caused damage.
As a result of the Restatement (Second) of Contracts from the American Law Institute, there are several factors that must be taken into consideration to determine whether a failure constitutes a breach:
“In determining whether a failure to render or to offer performance is material, the following circumstances are significant: (a) the extent to which the injured party will be deprived of the benefit which he reasonably expected; (b) the extent to which the injured party can be adequately compensated for the part of that benefit of which he will be deprived; (c) the extent to which the party failing to perform or to offer to perform will suffer forfeiture; (d) the likelihood that the party failing to perform or to offer to perform will cure his failure, taking account of all the circumstances including any reasonable assurances; (e) the extent to which the behavior of the party failing to perform or to offer to perform comports with standards of good faith and fair dealing.”
—American Law Institute, Restatement (Second) of Contracts § 241 (1981)
Reaching Resolution in Breach of Contract Cases
The best and fastest way to resolve business disputes is through mediation. Unfortunately, mediation does not always work and it may be necessary to pursue arbitration or even litigation.
The law establishes time limits for pursuing legal action in cases involving a breach of contract. Contract law can be difficult for business owners to navigate on their own. To ensure the best possible outcome, it is best to seek counsel from an experienced breach of a contract lawyer.
