A contract is a legally binding agreement that requires parties to act in a certain way. If either party in a contract fails to perform according to the terms in the contract, they have breached the contract, and the other party can take legal action.

In order to establish a claim of breach of contract in California, four elements must be established:
  1. There was a valid contract
  2. One side performed (or had a valid reason to not perform)
  3. The other side breached
  4. Damages were incurred

Types of Damages

Depending on the terms of the contract and amount of damages, different remedies are available. There are two types of contract damages: general and special.

General Damages

  • Natural
  • Foreseeable damage

Special Damages

  • Dependent on specific circumstances
  • Additional losses
