In the construction business, people need to keep their word. In order to lay out just what is expected from people, contracts are signed to give someone remedy in case something goes wrong. Contracts delineate the rights and obligations between parties to a construction project and are essential to a smooth transaction. In an ideal world, both parties maintain their end of the bargain and perform as promised.
However, in the real world, parties breach contracts. Schecter Law has defended and prosecuted breach of contract actions since 1976, and with related experience in construction and transactional law, our South Florida breach of contract attorneys are well equipped to handle all aspects of contractual disputes. We fully analyze the issues that exist in your dispute and help you determine the proper course of action.
The remedies that exist for a particular breach of contract depend on how badly the contract was breached. If it is only a minor breach, you often cannot sue for specific performance (compelling a party to perform a certain action) but instead can only sue for damages. Because these damages might be negligible, our Fort Lauderdale breach of contract attorneys can let you know whether or not filing suit is cost-efficient.
For a major breach, there are more remedies under the law. A material breach means that the other party did not hold up their end of the contract. In this case, you can sue the opposition to get them to perform the action they were supposed to, plus you can sue for damages. If it becomes clear that a party cannot complete the action, that is a fundamental breach and can get you released from a contract while also allowing for damages. An anticipatory breach means it is evident that the other party will not be able to perform the given actions laid out in the contract.
