What Are General Damages?
General damages have been described as the “present value of the thing promised,” or the “value of the very performance contracted for.” Nevada has formulated a very broad definition of general damages, including damages which ordinarily flow from a breach. In Bradley, the Court held that even a small loss of profit is considered a general damage where the loss is a “direct and natural result which the law will presume to follow from the breach of contract.” The Supreme Court of Nevada also held in Eaton v. J.H. Inc. that lost profits are generally an appropriate measure of damages where a party is prevented from performing according to the full terms of the contract.
