A Broken Contract Leaves Much at StakeContracts are the cornerstone of business operations for companies throughout Florida and across the country. Legal agreements govern everything from the production, shipping, and sale of goods to who cleans the office and stocks the break room. Unfortunately, not everyone always lives up to their obligations under a contract. Breaches can lead to significant business interruptions that are not only aggravating but also costly. The good news is you have the right to seek compensation and other legal remedies when another party to a contract does not live up to their side of the bargain.
Contract Formation in FloridaA contract is a binding legal agreement that includes four essential elements:
- Offer: A promise by one party to do (or not do) something.
- Acceptance: The other party unequivocally agrees to the terms of the offer.
- Consideration: Each party must receive some sort of benefit from the agreement.
- Mutual Assent: Both sides must intend to enter into a binding contract.
What is Considered a Breach of Contract?Contracts are often breached in a number of different ways, which generally fall into three categories:
- Failure to perform as obligated by the agreement
- A party makes it impossible for the other party to perform.
- One party repudiates the contract or makes clear the party does not intend to perform.
