Available Remedies and
Damages in Commercial Litigation

Wright Commercial Litigation leverages a network of valuation experts, financial professionals, and industry specialists to conduct thorough damage assessments from the start of an engagement and estimates costs through trial to ensure a client knows what to expect and has the best opportunity to fully recoup all losses (and more).

Depending on the circumstances, a business or individual harmed in a commercial dispute may be entitled to the following remedies:

  • Compensatory, actual, or economic damages to recover financial losses incurred as a direct result of breach or a tort, such as “benefit of the bargain” damages, royalties, out-of-pocket costs, diminution in market value, cost of repair, and replacement cost
  • Consequential and incidental damages to reimburse special losses incurred as an indirect but foreseeable result of harm, such as lost profits, loss of use, reliance damages, restitution, costs of mitigation, loss of credit or financing, and loss of goodwill
  • Liquidated damages is a special form of compensation agreed to in advance by the contract to remedy its breach, which are enforceable to the extent they were a reasonable forecast of loss and not a penalty
  • Punitive damages (called exemplary damages in Texas) to punish a defendant for engaging in particularly unfair, unconscionable, egregious, reprehensible, or malicious conduct, and deter others from similar wrongdoing
  • Treble damages (or statutory damages) as a multiplied recovery provided by legislation to deter unlawful business misconduct, based on statutes like the DTPA, bad faith insurance denial, usury, and more
  • Reformation to correct mistakes in a contract and reflect the true intent of parties, or conform the terms to mandatory requirements of law
  • Attorney fees incurred to vindicate your rights may be recoverable under a contract or by law for enforcing an agreement, and for various statutory violations
  • Prejudgment interest as compensation for the lost use of money owed as damages, calculated from the date they should have been paid to the award
  • Rescission of a contract to return any money paid and place the parties back in the same position as if no contract formed in the first place
  • Specific performance requiring a party to perform their obligations under a contract, which is available only when monetary compensation is not an option or insufficient as a remedy (e.g., with real estate, or unique/irreplaceable goods and services)
  • Declaratory judgment allows a court to determine the meaning, rights, or status of a contract or other legal relationship when faced with threatened (or existing) breach or other harm
  • Injunctive relief, such as a temporary restraining order (TRO), temporary injunction, or permanent injunction to preserve the status quo and prevent loss from occurring
