If the agreement does not meet the legal requirements to be considered a valid contract, the “contractual agreement” is not enforced by law and the injuring party is not obliged to compensate the non-injuring party. In other words, the claimant (non-injuring party) in a contractual dispute suing the injuring party can only receive pre-existing damages if he is able to prove that the alleged contractual agreement did exist and was a valid and enforceable contract. In this case, the waiting injury that attempts to make the non-injuring party a whole is rewarded by the award of the amount of money that the party would have paid if there had been no breach of contract, plus all reasonably foreseeable consequential damages caused by the breach. However, it is important to note that there is no punitive damages for contractual remedies and that the non-injurious party cannot be awarded more than the expectation (cash value of the contract if it had been fully performed). What is a legal agreement is a frequent issue among those who are not familiar with contract law and the legal protection of a written agreement.3 Read min Contracts are widely used in commercial law and are the legal basis for transactions worldwide. The most common examples are contracts for the sale of services and goods (wholesale and retail trade), construction contracts, transport contracts, software licenses, employment contracts, insurance policies, sale or lease of land and various other uses. Finally, a modern concern, which has increased in contract law, is the increasing use of a particular type of contract known as “membership contracts” or form contracts. . . .
