What are Expectation Damages in Nevada?

Expectation damages award the plaintiff the difference between the value of the benefit reasonably expected as a result of the defendant’s agreed performance and the value she actually received (a.k.a., benefit of the bargain damages).  The plaintiff is basically put into the position he or she would have been in had the defendant fully performed.  Dalton Props., Inc. v. Jones, 683 P.2d 30, 31 (Nev. 1984).
