Muskogee Lawyer BlogCan You Sue Someone for Breaking a Promise?

The Short Answer Is Yes

attorney in MuskogeeVideo Transcribed: Can you sue someone for breaking a promise? I am Muskogee Attorney Eric Strocen. The short answer is yes, you may have a claim for someone who broke a promise to you.

Now, depending on the nature of that promise, we may have different types of the cause of action that could be brought. The most common that I see is a breach of contract.

Basically, there was a contract that existed, we had an agreement that was a legally enforceable agreement, that had all the elements required to have a contract met. However, one party didn’t really hold up to their promise and now the other party is aggrieved and there are damages.
