Damages for Breach of Contract
If a plaintiff successfully proves that there was a breach of contract, there are various options for recovery, including enforcement of the contract on its terms, cancelation of the contract with monetary damages, or liquidated damages as specified in the contract. Calculating damages can be complicated and contentious in many situations, especially in those situations when the non-breaching party suffered consequential damages. Consequential damages include things like lost future business or damage to business reputation.
