Most lawsuits are for money. You may be seeking damages for a breach of contract, or compensation for an injury. In some cases, other remedies are also available, in which a court will order a person or corporation to either do something or refrain from doing something. This type of relief is, however, significantly less common that suits for money alone. Although an award of money may not actually compensate you for some wrong or injury, it is generally the only remedy available to a court.
