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 impractical 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.
