The Casebook series provides a comprehensive selection of case law that addresses all aspects of the subject encountered on undergraduate courses. Contractual damages aim to compensate the injured party for the loss suffered due to breach of contract. Damages for breach are compensatory and not punitive so that it is possible to recover only for the actual loss suffered by the injured party. This chapter considers the different measures to achieve compensation for loss suffered as a result of the breach and the limitations on the ability to be fully compensated in a breach of contract claim. It also discusses agreed damages provisions and their enforceability.
