What kind of attorney do I need if I have a claim against a vending company whom I purchased a business opportunity package from?

1 Answers. Asked on May 22nd, 2017 on Contracts - Florida
More details to this question:
I purchased 9 vending machines as a "business investment" that included a laptop, software, training and a warranty for each of the machines. The carrier lost 2 of the machines before delivering them to me. I filed a claim with the carrier, but now they are saying that based on an agreement that the carrier has with the vending company, they only owe me $5/pound which is only 43% of the purchase price/machine. Is this worth hiring an attorney? Do I have a case?

This all depends the agreements you signed and the exposure you have for the loss. You will likely need to retain a lawyer to handle this issue at some expense and go from there. 

All responses are NOT to be considered legal advice nor to be relied upon in any as such nor to establish any form of attorney/client relationship. Opinions expressed are solely informational and not a substitute for proper legal advice provided by a properly retained after thoroughly researching the issues presented.

Contracts
Most people and business enter into contracts on almost a daily basis. Simply put, a contract is a legally binding agreement between two parties. One party makes an offer to do something in exchange for "consideration," or payment, and the other party accepts that offer. Contacts can be verbal, in writing or even implied. Some contracts--such as signed credit card receipts--are very simple. Others--such as those used to buy or sell real estate--are far more complicated. If you are entering into a complex transaction, it pays to hire a contract law attorney as early as possible in the process. Your lawyer can help negotiate the terms and conditions of the agreement, then draft the contract or review the contract that has been presented to you. Law firms with experience in contract law can also defend you if you or your company has been accused of breaching a contract, or if you need assistance enforcing a existing contract.
