Why do you need a lawyer if you are the victim of breach of contract?
You need a lawyer because often the only way to obtain the compensation or other contractual remedy YOU DESERVE is to pursue legal action against the breaching party. A lawsuit is not always required to resolve a contractual dispute, but legal representation demonstrates to the breaching party that you mean business. Also, if your lawyer is unable to resolve the contractual dispute prior to litigation, your only practical option to enforce the contract is to file suit and seek the remedy dictated by the contract or otherwise by law or in equity.

What can I get in a lawsuit for breach of contract?
A breach of contract lawsuit is a typical cause of action brought in civil court. The remedies available in a lawsuit for breach of contract are often based on the contract itself. What is commonly referred to as the basis of the bargain, or the fruits of the contract, dictate the purpose of the contract and define how or why the contract will be enforced by a court. If a breach of contract occurs the court will seek to enforce the contract or compensate the non-breaching party for the damages they sustain as a result of the breach. These remedies are often divided into two categories, deemed legal or equitable remedies. Legal remedies include monetary damages, and equitable remedies include specific performance or recission of the contract.
