Material Breaches of Contract in Iowa

A well-written contract will strictly define the scope of the relationship between two parties, including obligations and expectations for the final result of the work involved. When one party fails to fully live up to their precise obligations as defined in the contract, a breach has occurred.

The wronged party has the ability to recover damages for breaches. Defining and appraising breaches can be extremely complex, however, with the offending party only being liable for damages in situations where their failure to deliver resulted in measurable financial loss. Many contracts will include provisions specifically outlining how breaches are to be handled.

The extent of a material breach is determined by:

  • The extent of the impact to the injured party, including negative financial consequences
  • The extent of the offending party’s failure to deliver
  • The amount of damages that can be paid per the contract
  • The extent to which the offending party acted in good faith
  • The extent to which the offending party can potentially make good on the failure to deliver

In many cases, an injured party can only recover damages for a breach if they suffered clear, calculable financial loss due to the failure to deliver. If evidence supporting a negative financial impact cannot be supplied, it will be difficult to successfully argue for the recovery of monetary damages.

We can help you evaluate whether your business has suffered a breach and if you have a case for seeking monetary damages. Our team understands how Iowa courts adjudicate these matters and can advise on the most strategic course of action.
