Since contracts are at the heart of most business dealings, a breach of contract can have significant consequences. A breach of contract means that a legal agreement has been broken. Put another way, a breach of contract occurs when one party violates the terms of an agreement, which causes the non-breaching party to suffer damages.
The first step to claiming breach of contract is showing that a legally valid contract existed in the first place. Second, it must be shown that there was performance or tendered performance by the plaintiff. Next, there must be a material breach by the defendant. Lastly, the plaintiff must have suffered damages as a direct result of the defendant’s breach. Under Texas law, contracts can be oral or written. However, proving the existence of an oral contract can be extremely challenging.
It is important to note that legal action for wrongful conduct has to be taken within a certain time frame, known as the statute of limitations. Every state has its own statute of limitations for different types of wrongful conduct. In Texas, for example, a breach of contract claim must be filed within four years, unless a contractual provision lessens it to two years. While there are legal exceptions that will extend the time limit, it is rare, and only an experienced attorney will be able to determine whether your circumstances qualify for any such exceptions. To be safe, it is important to act quickly so you don’t lose your legal right to pursue a case altogether.
