Breach of Contract

New Jersey Breach of Contract Attorneys

A contract functions as a private law governing the relationships between two or more parties. Those parties can be individuals, businesses, or the government. If and when necessary, the courts will enforce these private laws. Knowing that contracts will be enforced by our courts allows America’s commercial system to function. Otherwise, agreements and contracts could be made but not enforced. You would have to trust the other person to uphold their end of the agreement if the courts couldn’t enforce it, often making a contract unnecessary.

A well-drafted contract will work to prevent many problems in advance. Unfortunately, countless contracts are not well-drafted, or they don’t account for potential new circumstances. The result is complex legal and factual issues in lawsuits over the interpretation and breach of contracts.

What is the Breach of Contract in New Jersey?

Contracts can end in many different ways. One of the least desirable ways is by breach of contract. A breach happens if one party doesn’t fulfill their responsibilities as they promised to in the contract. Breaches can be small or significant. Small breaches don’t generally terminate a contract. A significant breach materially impacts the subject matter of the contract. A significant breach in a contract may result in damages to the other party.

In breach of contract causes, damages can be hard to identify and even more difficult to establish in court. By working with a well-versed New Jersey breach of contract attorney, your case has a greater chance of success. Courts usually only award monetary damages if the harm done to the aggrieved party is provable and foreseeable. Foreseeable damages are defined as those that could have or should have been anticipated when the contract was created. 

It’s the job of New Jersey courts to place the innocent contract party in the same position they would have been in if the contract had been performed and not breached. For example, if the breach of contract caused a business to lose $1000, the court would award them $1000 in damages paid by the party who breached the contract.
