Frequently Asked Questions
It depends on the type of claim. Breach of contract claims are five years from the breach. Most fraud claims are four years from the date of the fraud, however, some fraud claims could have longer based on the discovery of the fraud. Defamation claims are only two years from the act. Given all of these different time periods, it is essential to contact a commercial litigation lawyer to protect your rights, because filing a claim outside of these time periods could result in a court automatically dismissing your claim.
What you recover depends on the type of claim. For instance, breach of contract claims could result in expectation damages (what you would have expected to profit if the contract was completed), compensatory damages (damages to compensate the non-breaching party for their losses in the breach), consequential damages (reimbursement from indirect losses from the breach of the contract), and other possible damages. In fraud or defamation claims, businesses may be entitled to “actual damages” for their losses. Some commercial litigation claims can result in punitive damages if the breaching party’s conduct was egregious. Always ask a commercial litigation lawyer to what you may be entitled to.
