Unrelenting Legal Support

When can I take legal action against a breach of contract?

On Behalf of | Jul 11, 2024 | Business Law

Businesses typically thrive by conducting various transactions and creating arrangements to help them operate, grow or reach their goals. These activities could be typical but may only remain secure by involving contracts that protect each party’s interests and establish their obligations.

A comprehensive agreement can be an effective tool, allowing businesses to interact and team up when aiming for similar objectives. However, there could always be a risk of breaching the contract, which can happen if one or more involved parties fail to hold their end of the setup.

The law has provisions to protect individuals and companies against these incidents, but they may only take legal action if they are valid. A breach of contract in Florida should meet specific conditions, including:

  • An enforceable contract that meets the technical requirements to keep it legally binding
  • A material breach, meaning it causes one or more involved parties to suffer
  • Losses or damages caused by the breach

If an incident fails to meet these conditions, the breach could be invalid, affecting what legal options can help address it. Other factors, such as the events leading to the violation and the details surrounding it, can also impact if it is valid, depending on the situation.

Knowing what to do about a breach of contract

Facing a breach of contract can be stressful, especially if it causes significant damages and derails the business’s strategies. Going to court could be essential in these scenarios, requiring legal counsel to navigate the process. It might not guarantee a favorable outcome, but experienced guidance can help involved parties make informed decisions and determine appropriate options to help address the burdens caused by the breach.
