Proving a Breach of Contract Without a Written Agreement
In cases where a breach of contract has occurred, but there is no written agreement, the burden of proof and evidence rests entirely on the party who is trying to sue the defendant. That means the offending party does not have to prove their innocence; instead, the plaintiff must prove their indisputable guilt. In Texas, certain contracts can be enforceable regardless of whether it was made orally or in writing.
- The offer
- Acceptance of the offer's terms
- Meeting of the minds between the parties
- Exchange of consideration as a result of the agreement
This may be difficult to prove without a paper trail, but it is certainly possible. It is also important to keep in mind that if an individual was never aware of the fact that a verbal agreement was legally binding, they likely cannot be held liable. Every case will involve different factors that require extensive investigation and assessment. That is why having a qualified attorney behind your case during this time can be so crucial.
