Contracts are agreements between parties to do, or not to do, something in exchange for something of value. For many people and businesses, contracts are a key element in their practices and income.
A contract can simply be an agreement to pay for goods or services. There is an old saying that a verbal contract is not worth the paper it is written on. However, in Hawaii, a verbal contract is as enforceable as a written contract.
What Is a Breach of Contract?
Contracts are made and fulfilled everyday without incident. Unfortunately, a breach of contract -or- broken contract occurs if one party attempts to back out of the agreement, breaking a stipulation of the contract. One reason a contract is broken is contractual interference.
When a third party interferes with a contract, and causes a breach of contract, a claim may be filed against the third party to recover compensation for the broken contract. If a third party has interfered with your contract, affecting your personal property, then you deserve to recover compensation.
If you are involved in any type of breach of contract or if someone has interfered with your contracts (or even your potential contractual relationships), Philip R. Brown can help you recover the compensation you deserve. It is not even necessary that this interference was intentional, since Hawaii law recognizes the rights of the victims of negligent interference with contracts.
