    hadley v baxendale


    In the case of Hadley v. Baxendale, the court ruled on principles of contract law regarding consequential damages. The essence was that when parties enter into a contract, they should foresee the potential consequences of a breach. If those consequences are unusual or not readily foreseeable, they may not be recoverable. This landmark case established the fundamental "foreseeability" test, where damages must have been reasonably foreseeable by both parties at the time the contract was made to be recoverable. It's a pivotal ruling that continues to shape contract law, ensuring parties understand and consider potential outcomes when forming agreements.
