Damages For Different Types Of Default

Show Summary Details


In civil law systems, it is common to distinguish, for the purpose of damages, between various kinds of default. Common law systems do not distinguish, as a matter of legal principle, between damages for delay and non-performance, or between damages for delay, impossibility and defective performance. The general requirements for notice of default in civil law and common law are discussed.
