A contract is an agreement offered by one party and accepted by another. Contracts are almost always written documents in Alabama, but it is not impossible to have an exclusively oral contract. When a contract is not fulfilled by one or more parties, there is a Breach of Contract. Parties occasionally choose not to fulfill their contractual obligations, and sometimes during the course of business, it can be impossible to do so. The consequences for a breach of contract are decided by the circumstances. Often, the party at fault will pay the other for the loss caused by the breach.

What If Someone Fails to Honor Their End of the Contract in Fayette

A breach of contract in Fayette can lead to the party who did not fulfill its end paying the other party for the damage that resulted. However, there can be contention in court as to the exact amount of the award. If this disagreement cannot be resolved, the matter may be taken to court. Courts generally require you to plead the amount of damages you suffered in the initial complaint.

What If I Can't Fulfill a Contract?

If something other than a monetary award is needed, courts in Fayette, Alabama are authorized to grant injunctions, ordering the party at fault do what it agreed. If you seek this kind of remedy, your concerns must be properly voiced to the court so that it might consider how to correct the situation. Breaches of contract sometimes involve no wrong doing by the breaching party. Therefore, more than the question of whether a breach of contract actually occurred is considered by courts. How and why the contract duties went unmet are also factors in Alabama law.
