When a company in Florida decides to make upgrades to daily operations, it may enter negotiations with numerous businesses before making a decision. Upon entering an agreement with another party, a company may expect to receive a quality product, and if the other party fails to deliver, litigation may follow. A fire dispatch center has recently filed a lawsuit against a software company, accusing it of breach of contract and fraud.
According to reports, the incident began when the dispatch center made the decision to upgrade the software in its computers. After the bidding process was completed, the company entered into a contract with the software company Tyler Technologies. However, upon receiving the new software from the company, the center claims that the product failed to work.
The dispatch center asserts that the incident could pose a significant safety threat, as its current systems are outdated and in need of upgrades. The center asserts that this incident has also forced it to pursue other arrangements that will further delay the necessary upgrades. The center has since filed a lawsuit against the company and is seeking to recover over $7 million in damages.
When a breach of contract occurs, business owners may wish to take steps to protect the interests of their companies, but they might need guidance in the process. Those who face a similar circumstances could choose to speak with an attorney for guidance on how best to approach the situation. An attorney in Florida can examine the situation and assist a client in pursuing the compensation deserved through a claim against the party or parties deemed responsible.
