Anyone who has ever made a major purchase on credit, signed onto a mortgage or dealt with a service company knows what "breach of contract" is all about. If either party fails to live up to the terms and provisions of the contract (either in letter or spirit), the other party may seek restitution through the courts. Compensation may include more than just the dollar value of the financial losses, but may incorporate damages for future financial losses, legal fees, pain and suffering for injuries/death and under specific circumstances, even punitive damages.
Business owners are taken to court for countless reasons. Sometimes, litigation is centered around disputes with competitors, such as allegations of a breach of contract, for example. Others may involve employees, such as claims that overtime was denied, and an employee may also decide to take their case to court after they are hurt in a traffic collision that took place on the job. Lawsuits as well as the hardships that car accident victims face highlight how essential it is to prevent motor vehicle accidents from occurring on the job. However, more workers will continue to sustain injuries and pass away in the years ahead.
