What are Special Damages in Nevada?

Unlike general damages, special or consequential damages are not based on the value of the promised performance, but on the “benefits [the performance] can produce or the losses that may be caused by [the performance’s] absence.”[1]  Special damages are those that do not flow from breach of the contract.[2]
