Contract Litigation


     Breach of contract is where one (or more) party to a contract does not live up to his or her end of the bargain. The other party may be an individual, a business or an insurance company. All contracts carry with them an implied obligation to act in good faith. The law expects fair dealings with one another. Unfortunately, some insurance companies, businesses and individuals do not see it that way and attempt to gain extra advantage by either partial or non-performance under the contract.

     There are many types of contracts and the law governing contract interpretation is often complicated. The type of contract litigation most often seen at Mark Law Firm involves Home Improvement contracts, contracts for the sale of Real Estate, Contracts for the Sale of a Motor Vehicle and Insurance Type Contracts.

     Home Improvement Contracts: These types of contracts usually involve a homeowner and a contractor. The type of service promised by the contractor usually involves renovation of a kitchen, another room or the installation of an addition to the house. To often, a contractor does not do what is promised. Consumers have broad protection in these types of situations. These Home Improvement Contracts are regulated by Home Improvement Regulations written by the Attorney General's office pursuant to the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act. If a claim is successful, a homeowner may be entitled to triple the amount of damages and also have their attorney fees paid or reimbursed.

     Real Estate Contracts: These contracts are usually between private individuals where one party alleges that another is not living up to the bargain called for in the contract.

     Insurance Contracts: In an insurance contract, the insurance company usually insures against certain types of risks including disability, flood, fire, life or any number of other risks. Unfortunately, we have too many times seen insurance companies attempt to avoid their legal obligation to pay under the contact.

     Sometimes, depending on the type of contract and the provisions in the contract, attorney fees may be payable to the prevailing party. It is therefore necessary to review the entire insurance policy contract itself.
