Our client and legal team are seeking $17,975.61 in damages.
Understanding Unjust Enrichment
Unjust enrichment occurs when an individual or entity gains something beneficial that is not intended to be a gift and in not legally justifiable, without offering any type of compensation in a circumstance where compensation should be expected.
For unjust enrichment, the elements of a cause of action include:
- The enrichment of the individual or entity accused of unjust enrichment
- The enrichment was at the expense of the individual or entity seeking restitution
- The circumstances were such that in good conscience and equity restitution should be made
In addition, the accused party must be aware that the benefit is conferred.
