Defending Breach of Contract Claim

Blake Hannafan was lead counsel in a three-week jury trial in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts before Judge Allison Burroughs.  Plaintiff 600 lb Gorillas, Inc. brought this lawsuit against Defendants Fieldbrook Foods Corp. and Mister Cookie Face, LLC where the plaintiff alleged that the defendants failed to manufacture ice cream for Gorillas’ ice cream sandwiches to the agreed-upon specifications.  Gorillas’ claims included breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and fraudulent misrepresentation, seeking damages in excess of $13 million.  On behalf of its clients, Hannafan & Hannafan filed counterclaims for breach of contract and promissory estoppel.  The jury awarded Fieldbrook Foods and Mister Cookie Face every penny they asked for (over $270,000), and the plaintiff was awarded $725,000.

What if you were injured in a car accident?

How do you calculate your injury damages?  An attorney can determine the value of your claim, examining factors of total medical bills, whether or not you missed work, the fault of the injury, and how the accident happened.  The result is a claim review estimate.

Auto collisions are one of the most prevalent areas of personal injury cases.  Common vehicle injuries are:

  • Whiplash

  • Spinal cord or head injury

  • Fatal accidents

  • Wrongful death

If you were hurt in an accident, be sure to contact an attorney, such as Hannafan & Hannafan, who practices personal injury law.
