Breach of Contract in Tennessee

By Law Office of John Whitfield  Jul. 7, 2010 4:42p

When a breach of contract occurs involving a business or commercial entity, legal actions are often necessary to correct any injustices. Working with a breach of contract attorney who is experienced in this aspect of law is important. Creating a successful strategy requires someone who knows contract law as this will increase your chances of winning a settlement without the necessity of going to trial.

Facts about Breach of Contract

Contracts are important documents to have when entering agreements on a business or even personal level. This places the agreements in written form giving specifics for both parties entering the agreement. If a breach of contract does occur, (one party fails to honor their side of the agreement) the dispute can much more easily be sorted out. Verbal agreements are inferior as they leave far too much open for error or misinterpretation.

There can be different types of breaches of contract: Not doing something as laid out in the agreement, not performing some action within a specified time period, or not doing some action at all that was specified in the contract. Some breaches of contract can be labeled as material breaches and others can be immaterial. Having an attorney familiar with breach of contract law can help determine the proper course of legal action for the breach and the appropriate remedy.

There are circumstances whereby a contract can be deemed void so as to avoid being charged with breach of contract and this is where an attorney's expertise may become necessary for guidance.
